Results are described of an engineering study program for a post-attack, survivable antenna installation. The purpose of the program was to determine the feasibility of an air supported, integrated, radome-antenna configuration that can be packaged in a small volume, stored under ground in a hardened enclosure, and capable of being quickly tomatically erected. Per formance characteristics are to be comparable to a conventional 25 by 18 foot parabolic re flector. Theoretical computations were made to establish the aperture parameters, feed configura tion, reflector shape, and reflector parallel conductor configuration. Tests were performed to confirm the theoretically established design con figuration. Accuracy requirements were estab lished for the reflector shape and parallel conductor arrangement. Author
