Abstract : An array of four helical antennas connected through strip line hybrids to form a phase monopulse system, has been investigated to determine design criteria and limitations for such a system. The investigations included both theoretical and experimental work. Good agreement between experimental results and theoretical predictions was obtained. The basic design and characteristics of the system are described. (Author)
