Abstract:

The report covers an experimental program designed to evaluate the use of the Complex Indicated Angle technique for measuring the elevation angle of targets in a multipath environment. The test radar was an ANFPS-16 at WSMR. Data taken with a simulated target were encouraging. Tests with aircraft targets, however, produced rapidly fluctuating data from which the elevation angle could not be deduced. This flight test data does not agree with theory nor with previously obtained flight data. The reason for the fluctuations was not determined but possible causes are discussed.
