AbstractThe antenna previously employed on the Microwave Position-fixing System under development at the National Research Council, was a non-resonant slotted wave-guide array. One major disadvantage of such an antenna is that the direction of the main beam is a function of frequency. This inherent property of the antenna introduces an error in the bearing readings. To overcome this difficulty and to improve the accuracy of the overall system, the design of a high resolution pillbox antenna was undertaken. The new antenna has a horizontal half-power beamwidth of about 1 degree and side lobes of the order of -25db.
