Abstract : A control method for automatically steering the beam of a partial cylindrical array radar antenna is described. The beam is randomly positioned by controlling 3-bit diode phase shifters of the Microwave Integrated Circuit (MIC) type, through the application of a small digital computer. The application of thick-film microcircuit techniques to produce the phasor driver and test circuit in a common package is described. (Author)
