Abstract:

This report presents a technique which enables the antenna design engineer to establish his own design and location criteria and the associated trade-offs and to analyze existing circuits. Conclusions are drawn about shipboard antenna design and location for the ship-to-ship case example Ship antenna height has little effect on circuit performance at low vhf frequencies the ship-to-air case High ship antennas and the highest frequencies produce detection contours with large amounts of lobing and the shortest distances of satisfactory performance and the general case High time availabilities require large protection biases to achieve the desired performances. An appendix indicates the effect of a complex shipboard environment upon a sample receiving system.
