Abstract : A description of the error signal created by conical scanning was experimentally obtained for a passive tracking antenna system designed to operate from 1.5 Gc to 12 Gc. The information obtained consisted of the error signal fundamental null position, the error signal fundamental gradient, the amplitudes of the harmonic components of the error signal and the phase of the error signal fundamental as functions of target error angle, target position angle, received frequency and polarization.
