    An electromechanical scanning antenna technique is proposed to provide improved TACAN ground-beacon performance over the full 960-to 1215-Mc band.A radially symmetric, shaped-beam reflector is illuminated by an off-set, radial-pillbox horn. The horn is driven by a radial transmission line which contains a central radiator. Parasitic elements are arranged in dielectric rings positioned concentrically with the central radiator. The rings are rotated uniformly about the center line to generate an amplitude-modulated, omnidirectional azimuth pattern. The complex response of the elements controls the percentage modulation, while the geometry of the reflector and its feed independently control the shape of the elevation pattern. The antenna generates uniform azimuth modulation over the elevation angles of interest. View full abstract»

  • A Spherical Triangle Computer for Marine and Air Navigation

    A simple analog computer, which solves the oblique and the right spherical triangle equation, is described based on the law of cosines. With three parameters of the oblique triangle as inputs, the fourth is computed with an accuracy better than ± 10 minutes of arc for most of the practical problems. The computer can be used to solve navigational problems such as the hour angle, course angle and great circle distance. Solutions for the right spherical triangle are obtained when one parameter is set to 90°. View full abstract»

  • The Mosaic Radar Hand-Off System

    The Mosaic Radar System combines the coverage from multiple unsynchronized surveillance radars, each covering adjacent geographical areas. Some new techniques are presented and their application to the design of a complete Air Traffic Control system. One of the important features of the system is the positive radar hand-off capability-the means by which transfer of control is effected between controllers responsible for aircraft in adjoining sectors.
