HIGH-GAIN ANTENNA REALIZATION AND TRACKING STUDY
OHIO STATE UNIV RESEARCH FOUNDATION COLUMBUS ANTENNA LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
Research is concerned with determining the feasibility of constructing a highly steerable antenna having a gain on the order of 70 db at 2000 mc. The antenna is intended to be used in a passive communication system employing spherical reflectors or distributed chaff in orbit. The relative advantages of an array type antenna over a single aperture antenna are discussed. The gain limitations of large array type antennas as well as the sources of noise temperature in an array are considered along with a discussion of methods of correcting for atmospheric effects occuring across the aperture of a large antenna.
