Abstract : Potential applications for a precision, monopulse polarimeter exist in many areas, from ELINT to communications. Many applications require coverage of a broad range of frequencies, rapid processing, and the ability to present measurement results to both human operators and other digital systems. In addition, the form in which measurement results are presented must often be modified to suit a particular application. The need for a powerful, flexible, monopulse polarimeter prompted the development of the Watkins-Johnson Company polarization measurement system.
