Abstract:

This thesis suggests an unconventional, unique method for passive range and height estimation of a cruising missile, or other microwave transmitter. Based on multipath propagation, the method uses 5 receiving antennas in a ladder configuration. Ratios of received signal powers are compared with values from lookup tables to determine the correct location of the transmitter. Computer simulation results are presented, to verify the suggested method.
