An implementation of this algorithm is described using self-calibrating feedback techniques in a Government-furnished predetection combiner. Both contractor laboratory results and Government field tests over the RADC Troposcatter Experimental Range are presented to demonstrate the various improvements achievable with the additional signal distortion weighting algorithm.
