ANALYSIS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF IMAGE GLIDE SLOPE ANTENNA IN THE PRESENCE OF TRUNCATED GROUND

An analysis has been performed to permit the calculation of fields of dipoles at any orientation over lateral or transverse conducting half-planes and over multiple contiguous strips of arbitrary tilt angle. Computer programs were developed to calculate DDM over terrain types from half-planes and strips. Glide path DDM calculations over typical terrain types for the three image type glide slope systems have been computed. (Author)
