Abstract:

Research efforts were continued on 1 the improvement in beacon performance when a ferrite circulator is used as the duplexer, 2 the possibility of designing a fixed tuned crystal video detector for the C-band range, 3 the application of parametric amplifiers to radarbeacon receivers, 4 the performance of an experimental C-band parametric amplifier, 5 a 370 mc tunnel diode amplifier, 6 the theory of optimum linear filtering and prediction, as applied to radar tracking systems, and 7 an approximation method for the design of an optimum filter, valid at high signal-to-noise ratios. Previous results comparing the tracking accuracy of pulse and pulse-doppler radars are summarized. Author
