    Scatter from the sea near grazing from MF through VHF is analyzed in this paper. Results based on the compensation theorem show that the dependence upon the grazing angles, as well as upon frequency, range, and the effective surface impedance, can be removed for vertical polarization as the familiar "Norton attenuation factors." Time variation of the surface is included, and results are derived fo... View full abstract»

    The feasibility of correcting phase aberrations of spherical reflector antennas with planar array feeds has been investigated. This type of feed seems to be particularly attractive for applications requiring several closely spaced beams. A synthesis procedure for the array excitation has been developed which minimizes the mean-square error with respect to a prescribed reflector illumination. This ... View full abstract»

    The complex reflection coefficient of a longE-plane sectoral horn is derived using the geometrical theory of diffraction. Single diffraction alone is shown to be sufficient to describe the contribution from theE(widely separated) edges, while singly and doubly diffracted fields from theHedges are included by using an open waveguide result derived elsewhere.

    The effect of symmetrically loading a horn aperture withE-plane dielectric slabs is examined both theoretically and experimentally. It is shown that aperture efficiencies of the order of 92-96 percent may be obtained easily and inexpensively. The technique, which was demonstrated experimentally for a small horn aperture, might find application in limited scan arrays. View full abstract»

    The admittance of a half-wavelength slot antenna in a two-layer lossy plasma is shown to be greatly affected by moderate electron temperatures (T_{e} leq 1 eV) when the plasma is overdense. The effects of slot width and electron collision frequency upon the slot admittance also are investigated. View full abstract»

    An extensive set of curves for the aperture admittance of a waveguide-fed axial slot on a coated metal cylinder is presented for both an underdense plasma and a Teflon coating. Examination of these curves shows that a slot on a cylinder with aKaof 2 to 3 has about the same aperture admittance as the identical slot opening onto a flat ground plane. View full abstract»

    Electrically short folded monopole antennas with lumped mutual coupling between driven and folded sections are considered, showing that the input radiative impedance exhibits a resonance frequency depending upon the sign and magnitude of the coefficient of coupling. If extended to "n-folded" monopoles with separate lumped mutual couplings, the analysis shows the input radiative impedanc... View full abstract»

    A highly directive antenna of simple and lightweight structure is designed and tested experimentally. It consists of a dielectric rod with conical hole loading an open-ended circular waveguide. The test has shown that three different radiation patterns can be obtained depending on the depth of penetration of the rod inside the waveguide. Also an improvement on the axial gain can be obtained when t... View full abstract»

    Directivity of rectangular planar arrays is often approximated using the directivity of two constituent linear arrays, either of dipoles or isotropic elements. A result has been derived for directivity of a rectangular planar array of short dipoles (in the plane of the array) using a method from Forman. The severe approximate directivity calculations are compared with this more accurate result. Cu... View full abstract»

    A modified small array technique for measuring both amplitude and phase of the active reflection coefficient is described. The method which does away with corporate feeding and phase shifters utilizes space feeding and employs a slotted line in the central element. Measurements on an 11 by 11 element array indicate feasibility of the method for simulation of large arrays. View full abstract»

    An analytical approach to the design of a super-synthesis antenna array is applied in this paper. It involves isolation and separate optimization of the influence of different parameters on the sampling of the spatial frequency components. The approach requires a detailed understanding of the geometry of tracking by an ensemble of baselines, but it gives a nearly optimum array design without much ... View full abstract»

    Using the iterative sampling method, sidelobe peaks can be made to conform to a specified shape within a given tolerance. The iterative sampling method allows the specifications for a given problem to be just satisfied, thereby avoiding an overdesigned pattern which may have a complicated current distribution or wide main beam. The type of calculations involved are typically only summations of ser... View full abstract»

    The derivation of an expression for the change in free space input impedance of a finite horizontal dipole, due to the proximity of a conducting half space, is outlined. The impedance change is expressed in a conveniently computable form in terms of the Fourier transform of the antenna current distribution. Using available transforms some typical results are shown over a 50:1 frequency range. View full abstract»

    Radar cross section (RCS) patterns of a thin straight wire have been computed, and the results have been plotted as constant RCS contours on the frequency-aspect plane for a twenty-to-one frequency range. The resulting map illustrates how the resonant peaks and interference nulls vary simultaneously with frequency and aspect, providing a clear picture of the backscattering behavior and allowing re...
