Abstract:

Tests designed to determine the feasibility of the beam rider technique for a high speed missile utilizing controlled propagation techniques are described. At a frequency of 13.5 gc the use of circularly polarized r.f. energy did not eliminate the multipath reflection in the region of the grazing angles examined. Four degrees or less. The use of a narrow beam missile antenna provided angular discrimination which was found to be more significant in the reduction of ee multipath interference than the polarization factor. The application of these techniques to high speed missile guidance is discussed in the Analytical Section.
