Abstract : The report summarizes the results of a study to determine the optimum configurations for the components of a feed system for a high-power nanosecond-pulse high-resolution S-Band radar system. The system employs 8.00 X 5.36 inch oversize rectangular waveguide. Developmental model system components including power combiners, load switches, straight waveguides, H-plane, bends, horn radiators, and horn radomes are described. The breadboard model system consisting of duplexers rotory joints and sampling couplers is also described. (Author)
