Abstract : This work describes a digital bearing computer for the Wullenweber RDF system in the monopulse mode. The phase difference between the left and right bank signals is the principle indicator of bearing azimuth time averaging is shown to produce the bearing of the primary signal and further computation using selected values of the sequence of phase differences will yield the bearing of the secondary signal and the relative amplitude. The errors which result from elevation angle variation are discussed. (Author)
