Abstract:

The performance of Radar Antennas of a conventional rotating type can be specified and interpreted with relative ease. The performance of fixed antennas phased arrays can be described only by families of multivariate functions, which lead themselves to statistical rather than deterministic analysis. The nature of these functions, including an examination of some transient effects, is illustrated in pictorial ways 3-dimensional graphs, and some new performance concepts are defined. Not only is the distinct change in performance interpretation urgent for the microwave engineer and system specifier, it is also important that those concerned in less direct ways with Navy radar operation have an appreciation of these properties.
