Abstract:

To demonstrate the potential of monopulse in the ATC environment, an experimental facility has been established at TSC. The components of the facility are described and a functional description of the TSC monopulse receiver used in the first years effort is presented. An error analysis defines the measurement accuracy possible in using the TSC monopulse receiver. Results of two experiments are also presented in this report. The first shows the monopulse accuracy degradation due to receiver noise for targets at an equivalent of a 200 nmi range the second graphically demonstrates the effect of interference on target location capability. Finally, recommendations for a follow-on activity are presented.
