    The history of development of monopulse radar in the US is reviewed herein. Significant techniques that permitted monopulse tracking radars to achieve accurate tracking with high efficiency are discussed, including sum-and-difference antenna feed networks, multi-horn and multi-mode feeds, precision mechanical pedestals, and space-fed arrays. The discussion concentrates on surface-based radars, but many of the techniques apply to airborne radars and missile seekers developed during the same periods. View full abstract»

    Monopulse radars have played an important role in air and missile defense systems since the development of the monopulse technique in the late 1940s. This paper outlines the application of monopulse radars in Russian defense systems, starting with the Moscow ABM system and continuing in instrumentation and air defense radars now widely deployed in Russia and elsewhere View full abstract»

    GCA radars: Their history and state of development

    Ward, H.R. ; Fowler, C.A. ; Lipson, H.I.
    Proceedings of the IEEE

    Volume: 62 , Issue: 6
    DOI: 10.1109/PROC.1974.9510

    The evolution and state of development of the radars used in the Ground-Controlled Approach (GCA) systems of the U.S. Air Force is described. Emphasis is placed on the radar requirements of this application and the evolution made possible by the advances in component technology. We first review the concept of GCA operation and show how this leads to the requirements of the two radars in the system. Next we discuss the early history of GCA and the AN/MPN-1, the first operational system. The evolution of the GCA radars since the AN/MPN-1 is then summarized. Finally, we describe in more detail the AN/TPN-19. This is the most recent GCA system to be developed, and it makes effective use of array technology, frequency diversity, monopulse, pulse compression, and computer control. View full abstract»

    Development of the AN/FPS-16 Instrumentation Radar

    Barton, D.K.
    Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine, IEEE

    Volume: 26 , Issue: 4

    The AN/FPS-16 Instrumentation Radar, the first radar to be developed specifically for instrumentation of missile test ranges, entered development in 1954 under a US Army Signal Corps contract. It is a monopulse C-band tracking radar designed to hold both systematic and random angle errors to less than 0. 1 mils* rms and range errors to less than 5 yards rms. At the time of this writing in 2010, the AN/FPS-16 and its variants remain the primary source of trajectory data at US test ranges. Along with similar radars subsequently developed in other countries, they are in use at missile test ranges worldwide. View full abstract»

    Development of A Monopulse Radar System

    Kirkpatrick, G.M.
    Aerospace and Electronic Systems, IEEE Transactions on

    Volume: 45 , Issue: 2
    DOI: 10.1109/TAES.2009.5089565

    The first part of this paper provides background on radar developments at the General Electric (GE) Company in Schenectady, New York. The object (using available literature and patents) is to show there was an early and continuing effort to develop microwave radar at GE. The author was a participant in this radar program during World War II and in particular during the development of a monopulse radar. No attempt is made in this paper to establish a priority for the work reported. View full abstract»
