Paper Abstract

Antenna arrays are potentially useful for both the transmission and the reception of trains of electromagnetic pulses. In this paper, we formulate an aiming problem pertaining to an RKA- driven launcher of microwave pulses, and draw on a study of quantum measurements to develop an approach to aiming. Appendix A reviews the behavior of microwave radiation focused at a target in the Fresnel zone. Appendix B derives the antenna current for optimal angular sensitivity of a monopulse radar for a target in the Fresnel zone, very close to the axis.
