Abstract : This report describes the resultb of extensive analysis and measurement of antenna coupling factors. The purpose of these studies is to supply information essential to the adequate prediction of the interference between one eletronic communication system and one or more other electronic communication systems. All antennas involved in these studies, with two exceptions, are flush mounted antennas such as would often be utilized on aerospace vehicles of either manned or unmanned types. One exception is the study of the quarter wave monopole erected perpendicularly to a common grounding surface. The second nonflush mounted antenna type studied was the dielectric rod. The report is divided into sections according to types of antennas. In some of these sections intensive analysis is given as well as experimental data. In other sections the coverage is limited to analysis. Extended coverage is given to the coupling of one Archimedean spiral to another. The Archimedean spiral is considered to be a good example of traveling wave antenna widely used for aerospace vehicles. (Author)
