Abstract:

This report demonstrates the effectiveness of frequency diversity combining in significantly reducing data loss due to multipath interference during aircraft flight tests. Laboratory test results are presented to show the effectiveness of employing the FM capture principle to suppress multipath interference. A limited amount of flight test data is presented on the FM capture technique due to equipment problems encountered. A final determination on the success of the FM capture technique has not been made. Test data indicates that newly developed, high performance diversity combiners should also reduce the data loss through polarization diversity combining. Author
