Transmit TACAN Bearing Information
with a Circular Array
W. Mark Dorsey,
Jeffrey O. Coleman, and
William R. Pickles
Using TACAN and array fundamentals, we derive an
architecture for transmitting TACAN bearing
information from a circular array with time-varying
weights. We evaluate performance for a simulated
example array of Vivaldi elements.
In II-A(c) the first sentence "The desired complex
array pattern is an arbitrary constant complex
amplitude modulated by..." should be "The desired
complex array pattern is a polarization vector, which
rotates with $\phi$, times a constant complex
amplitude modulated by..."
