Abstract : The radar system developed for this program operates in the 15.4 to 15.7 gc navigation band, and uses a slotted array antenna to form an approximate cosecant squared pattern. The direct-view storage display unit provides a bright PPI display, with range representations of 1.5, 5.0, and 15.0 miles. Information renewal rotation speed is 30 rpm; pulse length is 0.22 microseconds and beam width is two degrees. Selection of video types is incorporated to enable evaluation of the FTC, video processor, and displaying beacons. The scope of the program was expanded to include three compatible ground-based beacons, and three passive enhancement devices. (Author)
