A cathode-ray monoscope tube has been developed to provide output closely resembling the directivity pattern of a radar antenna. The variation of secondary electron emission from aluminum with angle of incidence is used as the basis for design of the monoscope target. The conical aluminum target is so shaped that variation of the target current with beam deflection corresponds to the variation of received radar signal with angular displacement of the radar antenna.
