Abstract : The report describes a complete missile test range instrumentation system designated 'Cyclops.' Essentially, the system is a multiplexed single antenna adaptation of the Mark II Azusa capable of being installed and operated either on shipboard or at a fixed land base. All output data are supplied in digital form. A three-antenna version having an extended baseline for improved angular rate accuracy is also available in the fixed land-based installation. (Author)
