Abstract:

The development and final design efforts are discussed of a prototype model of the AT-601 XE-3TRN antenna for the radio beacon system ANTRN-9. Detailed consideration is given to 1 the electrical design of the radiation and feed circuits for the antenna cone and fan arrays, 2 matching technique for obtaining 1.2 VSWR, 3 evaluation of the necessity of a ground plane and the final choice of ground plane material, 4 mechanical redesign to obtain a rugged, portable, and easily assembled unit, the choice of the radiation element material and the means for radiation element quick disconnect, 6 radiation pattern measurements, 7 flight test measurement on the antenna, and 8 environmental testing.
