Abstract : In-phase sum and difference signals and quadrature sum and difference signals from a monopulse radar system are processed to form the sum of the in-phase signals, the sum of the quadrature signals, the difference of the in-phase signals, and the difference of the quadrature signals. The processed sum signals and the processed difference signals are then combined to form complex signals one of which is advanced and the other retarded by predetermined time. The complex signals are then divided into sequences of frequencies by identical banks of narrow band filters. The differences between the outputs of corresponding filters from each bank are averaged and then divided by a constant to form a beam pointing error value. (Author)
