Abstract:

Independent and interdependent line source aperture monopulse excitations have been derived for arbitrary pattern sidelobe constraints. A computer program, developed to solve for the required excitation coefficients, is outlined and appended. Numerical examples of independent excitations, which provide the maximum sum pattern gain factor or maximum difference pattern angular sensitivity factor, are compared with other reported aperture distributions. A tandem series-feed network capable of providing independent array excitations is described and the listing of a computer program for the practical design of a feed network is appended. Phased array applications to Displaced Phase Center Antennas, as used in airborne MTI systems, were investigated and the monopulse excitation requirements have been determined. Author
