AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE CAPABILITY OF MONITORING A PHASED OPEN-ARRAY ANTENNA

A requirement exists to develop a monitoring capability for air traffic control radar beacon system ground station equipments. The National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center has conducted tests of the Hazeltine open-array antenna to determine if it can be monitored in the electrical near-field of the antenna. Comparison-type data were obtained in the electrical near- and far-field of the antenna. The data indicate that the antenna can be monitored in the near-field. (Author)
