Scale Model Pattern Measurements of Aircraft L-Band Beacon Antennas,
MASSACHUSETTS INST OF TECH LEXINGTON LINCOLN LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes the techniques and apparatus used to measure the directional patterns of aircraft ATC transponder antennas L-Band using digital techniques and magnetic tapes for data storage. Algorithms involved in data normalization, cross-polarization correction and coordinate conversions are discussed. Some typical applications of the data are illustrated with actual computer outputs obtained from the model measurements.
