Abstract : The patent describes a radiometric system having two pairs of null seeking horns with two positional outputs and and amplitude output for summing and automatic gain control. The positional output in each pair is constantly switched alternately between adjacent horns in each pair. Each of the horns not connected to the positional outputs is fed to a third switch which feeds the sum and the AGC circuits.
