  • The Doppler Twin Beacon

    Publication Year: 1964 , Page(s): 2 - 8

    This radio aid to navigation differs from conventional radio beacons in the use of two spaced antenna arrays giving two separate directional radiation patterns. Preconditions and feasible solutions for the spatial separation of the arrays are shown. The use of the Doppler principle with its swing vs direction patterns permits transmission of the azimuth information independently of the carrier amp... View full abstract»

    The need for an accurate knowledge of ground speed, drift angle and distance traveled from an initial fix has prompted the military to sponsor development of airborne Doppler navigation systems. As a result of the military development programs and the arrival of the semiconductor age, the size, weight, cost and reliability of the Doppler nagivation systems has made it attractive to commercial carr...

    This paper describes a study of the statistical unlock characteristics of the commonly used optimum type II phase-locked loop taking into account the nonlinearity of the phase detector. The unlock behavior is investigated by simulating the loop with random noise inputs on a digital computer. A criterion of loop unlock is evolved using the phase portrait of the loop and consists of crossing of sepa... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses some aspects of high altitude, supersonic flight which should be considered in the design of the SST communications system. Emphasis is placed on the need for a high degree of coordination between the flight crew, air traffic controller, meteorologist and dispatcher-performance specialist. A brief description of pertinent B-58 aircraft operational experience is offered in supp... View full abstract»

  • Performance Prediction Method for a Class of FM-CW Radars

    Publication Year: 1964 , Page(s): 36 - 44

    In this paper the author has used the theory of zero crossings of random processes to analyze the errors due to receiver noise of a triangularly modulated FM-CW radar. Curves are given that can be used to determine the percentage error in the range measurement as a function of signal-to-noise ratio, provided the shape of the noise spectrum is known. The method of analysis is illustrated by predict... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given, as follows. A.M. Naqvi and R.J. Levy, authors of "Some Astronomical and Geophysical Considerations for Space Navigation," which appeared on pp. 154-170 of the September, 1963, issue of these Transactions, have called the following to the attention of the Editor: 1) On p. 159, Fig. 5, the curves from top to bottom are for mpg=20, 15, 10 and 5, respectively. 2) On...

  • An FM-CW Radar for Simultaneous Three-Dimensional Velocity and Altitude Measurement

    Publication Year: 1964 , Page(s): 45 - 57
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3321 KB)  

    An FM-CW radar is described which simultaneously furnishes three-dimensional velocity and absolute altitude information. The velocity is measured by means of a low-frequency FM-CW Doppler technique, and the altitude information by means of phase comparison on one of the sidebands of the received spectrum. The optimum radar parameters required for the two functions are completely compatible. Use of... View full abstract»

  • The Influence of Random Phase Errors on the Angular Resolution of Synthetic Aperture Radar Systems

    Publication Year: 1964 , Page(s): 58 - 65
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1130 KB)  

    The influence of random phase errors on the angular resolution of a focused synthetic aperture radar system is treated. The principal measure of performance has been taken as the mean envelope power at the system output. This system output power is evaluated exactly, although not in closed form, based on the following assumptions: 1) the real beam pattern is Gaussian; 2) the random phase error is ...

  • Binary Quantization of Signal Amplitudes: Effect for Radar Angular Accuracy

    An investigation made by P. Swerling [4] determining the limits that receiver noise imposes upon the accuracy with which the angular position of a target may be estimated by a pulsed search radar, is extended to determine additional accuracy limitations imposed by the quantization of signal strengths prior to angle estimation. This analysis follows that of Swerling in form. The results are present... View full abstract»
