    In this paper, air traffic control is considered quite separately from navigation or general communications. An analysis of the fixed block, the timed block, and the timed intersection systems of air traffic control shows that the fixed block system presents certain advantages. After a discussion of methods of naming and numbering fixes, a scheme is proposed of numbered blocks between fixes, inste... View full abstract»

    This paper outlines the major advantages and limitations of the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System under evaluation at the Civil Aeronautics Administration Technical Development Center. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of compatibility, the system traffic capacity problems, and the need for an operational doctrine to restrict the use of interrogators. System coverage, ground ante... View full abstract»

  • Airborne Storm Avoidance Radar Training

    In training scheduled air carrier flight crews in the use of airborne storm avoidance radar, a twofold problem is encountered. The utility of the instrument must be sold to the doubting Thomas who has many thousands of hours flying in thunderstorm conditions, and its limitations must be defined for those who see it as a miracle maker. In overcoming these problems, United Air Lines, training progra... View full abstract»

    High-frequency (2-24 mc) airborne direction-finding antennas are, in general, limited in accuracy, due to the undesired coupling between the antenna and the airframe which is electrically resonant in this frequency range. This paper describes the results of laboratory and flight test studies of antennas designed to eliminate such coupling and to achieve the necessary direction-finding accuracy. Th...

  • Effect of Precipitation on the Design of Radio Altimeters

    Radio altimeters operating in the microwave region must distinguish between desired signals returned from the ground and undesired signals returned from precipitation. Calculation of the relative ground and precipitation returns for a 0.1 microsecond pulse-duration altimeter requiring 10 to 1 desired-undesired signal ratio indicates a minimum wavelength of about 2 cm may be used for reliable opera...

    A miniaturized airborne rf power amplifier with continuous coverage of the 4-30-mc frequency range and with 1-kw average power output is described. Complete oil immersion for heat transfer and voltage insulation plus a novel six-phase self-rectifying power amplifier circuit give a high-power density unit capable of operating under extreme environmental conditions. The maximum usable power level is... View full abstract»

    Radar video information may be processed on a continuous-trace (as opposed to range-gated) basis by using delay elements whose delay times are integral multiples of the repetition period ¿. Networks consisting of such lines and of linear amplifiers and adders yield periodic pass bands. Their properties may be analyzed most conveniently by the transformation z = ep¿, where p is the complex freque... View full abstract»
