    It is possible to improve the accuracy of the position fixes made using low-frequency radio navigation systems by differentia I-mode operation, the position of the mobile being measured relative to that of a fixed monitor station, provided that the two stations experience errors which are substantially correlated. The recent development of high resolution automatic vehicle location systems which u... View full abstract»

    The increasing compactness of modern microwave communication and radar equipment commonly demands that the associated antennas have flat profiles; this paper surveys the various planar antenna design techniques that are available. After summarizing the well-established methods using slotted waveguide arrays, the more recent stripline and cavity backed printed antennas are surveyed; finally the lat... View full abstract»

    Formulae are given for the spectrum and the distribution of the summed output of n weighted stages of a shift-register whose input is random. The formulae are applied to the discrete-time simulation of the independent noise components Nx and Ny of Rayleigh fading. They are next applied to processes N¿ and NN¿ for the simulation of amplitude and phase, following a mathematical study of the proces... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

Published from 1963 to February 1964 by the British Institution of Radio Engineers and from March 1964 to 1984 by the the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers, The Radio and Electronic Engineer published papers describing original research and development in all branches of electronic engineering, as well as critical and interpretive surveys. Short contributions dealing with device technology, circuit techniques and experimental methods were also included.
