Abstract:

This rept. includes MONTE CARLO EVALUATION OF THE TRACKING ANTENNA, by Donald E. Johansen. 1961, 75p. incl. illus. Rept. no. ARM-257 ON THE GENERATION OF CORRELATED GAUSSIAN SAMPLES, by Donald E. Johansen. 1961, 22p. 8 refs. Rept. no. ARM-263A Monte Carlo evaluation is presented of the performance of a tracking antenna system in a scatter-type reception situation. The antenna analyzed tracks, with zero time lag, on the fluctuating angle of arrival of radio signals. The analysis evaluates performance statistics relating to the associated time-varying received power. It is concluded from this theoretical study that the use of a steerable antenna is comparable in principle to use of a high order angle diversity system with the same size aperture. The results indicate that the choice of one or the other is likely to vary with application requirements, and engineering problems of construction. Author
