Abstract:

Research concerned a program to accomplish the following conduct laboratory studies leading to development of antenna designs for research rockets and associated ground instrumentation systems conduct propagation studies leading to the determination of radiation characteristics, voltage breakdown, and heating problems associated with rocket antenna configurations and install rocket antennas in research rockets including Aerobee, Cajun, Spaerobee, Exos, Asp, Astrobee and other rockets. A photograph andor assembly drawing is provided for each antenna discussed. The electrical characteristics of the various antenna types are presented by impedance versus frequency curves, by VSWR versus frequency curves, by patterns of the principle plane cuts and by power contour plots. The various antenna series types are discussed with the emphasis on the distinguishing feature of the antenna models.
