Abstract:

For this study, a 2-element spaced array antenna system was developed and tested. This array consisted of two well-spaced vertical loops combined with a microwave link. The array was tested to show improvements in signal-to-noise ratio over omnidirectional antennas, using received transmissions from an aircraft towing a long wire antenna. Gains in signal-to-noise ratio of up to 12.8 dB were demonstrated. Author
