Three papers entitled Transient Response of a Linear Antenna to Pulse Voltage Excitation, Transient Terminal and Field Properties of Linear Antennas and Backscattered Field of a Linear Antenna and a Two Element Array constitute the three chapters of this report. They represent the approach taken by Dr. Sandler to the analysis of scattering from an array of linear antennas. The first paper develops an expression for the far field of a linear antenna excited by a pulse. A simple approximation for the current distribution on the antenna is assumed in this derivation. The second paper deals with essentially the same problem only from a point of view which is analogous to traveling waves on a transmission line. The concepts developed in these two papers have been incorporated into the third to investigate the backscatter properties of both a linear antenna and an array composed of two linear elements.
