Abstract
In the report a description of the tracking behavior of conical-scan radars with low-angle targets is presented. To begin, an equivalence is established between monopulse and conical-scan radars. Transformations are then developed from this equivalence, which permit one to treat a conical-scan radar as an equivalent monopulse radar. An example is given of the use of these transformations for simulating the low-angle tracking behavior of conical-scan radars. The simulated result is compared with a low-angle conical-scan radar measurement. Since approximations are made in developing the theory presented in the report, a discussion is given on the range of tracking parameters for which the theory is valid.
