Abstract : The report contains the results of a study of improved data handling methods in the application of the spatial sampling technique to direction finding in the troposcatter field. The basic theory is reviewed and possible errors in the assumptions examined. The effects of various system error sources (such as noise, phase and amplitude calibration errors, etc.) were examined in some detail and the results reported. Based upon the results of the study, recommendations for improving the calibration techniques are given. Data collected previously was analyzed for the purpose of determining the optimum data rate and record length. The results of this analysis are included. (Author)
