    Revolutionary developments taking place in the field of light generation show promise of providing a means for transmitting digital information over vast distances in space at extremely high rates. These developments stem from the generation of coherent light by devices called LASERS (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation). This paper gives a brief description of LASER operation ... View full abstract»

    This paper briefly describes some of the characteristics, capabilities, and limitations of the bistatic radar when used for the detection and location of targets such as aircraft or satellites. (A bistatic radar is one in which the receiver is physically separated from the transmitter so that the echo signal does not travel over the same path as the transmitted signal.) Among the topics discussed ... View full abstract»

    A general method for identifying and evaluating magnetic sources associated with the magnetic airborne detector-equipped aircraft is described. It is derived for the compensation of magnetic noise related to the maneuvers of the aircraft. Mathematical formulas are included with a uniform engineering method, that is independent of the type of magnetic source encountered, for analyzing magnetic airb... View full abstract»

    This paper describes several methods of phase modulation radar in which the Doppler effect provides a carrier for range information. It is shown that these methods yield simple radar systems capable of measuring both the range and the speed of a target down to essentially zero distance. In contrast to conventional radars, only a nominal transmission bandwidth is required even under conditions wher... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a radar system in which a measure of range is obtained as the phase difference between amplitude modulations on the transmitter and echo signals. Significant features of this AM radar system are simplicity and capability of accurately measuring very short ranges. For instance, an experimental unit ranges from zero to 50 feet with maximum error of six inches. View full abstract»

    A new application of the near-field theory is described which permits determination of the relative bearing of one object with respect to another by a simple phase measurement without an additional reference signal. The same instrument is used to measure distance between the objects. The angle indication is independent of distance. View full abstract»

    Euler's dynamic equation is derived in vector-dyadic form for a three-degree-of-freedom gyro configuration. This equation is then simplified by means of two approximations which are compatible with practical gyro design. As angular displacements of the gyro gimbals are assumed to be small, such displacements are represented by vector angles. Spring torques, and torques due to viscous damping are f...

    This paper is directed to the problem of transmitter-receiver leakage rejection in CW and FMCW radars which employ stepped-scanning antennas. An IF carrier-elimination filter has been devised and analyzed which provides leakage-rejection capabilities limited only by leakage variations during stationary beam positions. Leakage rejection is provided by coherently reducing the signal to zero IF, reje... View full abstract»
