    A method is described by which radio compasses may be tested using small shielded enclosures (24 by 24 by 24 inches for many loop types) instead of screen rooms. This procedure results in economies of cost and space, as well as providing portability and rapid setup. Application of accepted methods of determining field strength for calibration purposes is discussed. Enclosure modifications for util... View full abstract»

    The integration of Tacan with very-high-frequency omnidirectional range (VOR) to provide one common air-navigation and air-traffic-control system requires, for full usefulness, a method of automatic air-surface communication. Such a method, called the Tacan data link, has been devised, and is being flight-tested. Using this data link, messages can be received and sent to each of 120 aircraft every... View full abstract»

    A new device for measuring angular rate is analyzed and its mechanical and electrical design features presented. Analytical proofs of three important characteristics of the instrument are given. These characteristics are: 1) a sinusoidally modulated-carrier voltage with the envelope representing the magnitude of the useful output signal; 2) zero drift as well as zero offset effects separated from ...

    An equation is derived which can be used to compare the ability of a pulse radar to detect targets in rain and fog with its ability to detect similar targets in dry air. It is a common misconception that attenuation in the path between radar and target is the only consideration. However, clutter in the path between radar and target is the real concern. Clutter power backscattered from the storm in... View full abstract»

  • The PAR-Scope: An Oscilloscope Display for Weather Radars

    The PAR-scope, an oscilloscope display for pulsed radars, uses gated, averaged, amplitude information as one coordinate, and azimuth or elevation as the other coordinate; its display is a profile of average reflectivity. It is operated with a scanning antenna, permitting simultaneous operation with the RHI or PPI display. Such combinations provide means for rapid, three-dimensional quantitative ma...
