Abstract:

This report covers results of a contract to provide for a rapid and accurate alignment procedure of troposcatter antennas. An experimental model embodying a microprocessor based computation routine at the receive antenna and a stable transmitted frequency allows for alignment of antennas along the great circle path. The test data shows that an alignment accuracy of better than plus or minus 13 degree or approximately plus or minus 110 of a beamwidth could be accomplished in approximately 10 minutes.
