Abstract:

Antenna alignment in troposcatter systems is accomplished by 1 nutating the antenna receiver beam with a sinusoidal nutation signal to induce envelope modulation on the received signal 2 crosscorrelating the envelope of the received signal with the nutating signal and 3 aligning the average angle of the antenna receiver beam into the position where the cross correlation goes to zero.
