Abstract : The patent describes apparatus for compensating signal direction of arrival measurements used for direction finding and ranging for phase errors generated by changes in the relative positions of receiving antennas due to vibration or structural weaving. The apparatus can be used to advantage in monopulse radar systems wherein the relative phase between the signals induced in separated antennas is used to deduce target position.
