The present letter introduces a new approach to the construction of a set of ternary arrays having a zero-correlation zone. The proposed array set has a zero-correlation zone for both periodic and aperiodic correlation functions. As such, the proposed arrays can be used as a finite-size array having a zero-correlation zone. The proposed array sets can be constructed from an arbitrary Hadamard matrix. The member size of the proposed array set is close to the theoretical upper bound.
