Abstract:

This report describes an array of four, thirty-foot diameter independently steerable antennas designed to operate in a passive communications satellite environment. The array is adaptively placed to provide signal coherence and combining prior to detection. An analysis is presented of the various phase-locked loops in the array. The modes of operation and the design considerations for the array are discussed in detail. Results of operating the array with Echo I, Echo II, and the moon are presented and discussed. Author
