AbstractThe FAW is a mobile I’orward Area Warning set for Army use. Specifications call for complete coverage on all aircraft in the range 10 to 50 miles up to an altitude of 30,000feet, and azimuth accuracy of +5°. These requirements are partially met by the present ZPI, so that the substitution of an antenna with greater gain than the ZPI antenna, and having vertical gap filling, would allow the present ZPI transmitter and receiver to fulfill the requirements. This procedure minimizes the need of new production for the FAW set.
