Abstract (en)
[origin: US4641142A] A TACAN beacon is disclosed in which the pulse-modulated carrier signal generated in a transmitter is applied to the elements
of a circular antenna array through controllable phase shifters that generate 15-Hz and 135-Hz sidebands through, switches, and through a Butler
matrix. A switching facility generates two states. In the first state, the phase shifters are controlled to generate the upper and lower 15-Hz sidebands
and the upper 135-Hz sideband, respectively. In the second state, they are controlled to form the respective opposite sidebands. The Butler matrix
generates, radio-frequency phase-rotation fields at the antenna. In the two states, the ordinal numbers of the radio-frequency phase-rotation fields
differ in their signs. The absolute value of the largest ordinal number is smaller than or equal to six, and the sum of the absolute values of the ordinal
numbers for the carrier signal and the upper or lower 135-Hz sideband is equal to 9.
Abstract (de)
Bei dem TACAN-Drehfunkfeuer wird das in einem Sender (1) erzeugte impulsmodulierte Trgersignal ber steuerbare Phasenschieber (25, 26, 27),
die die 15-Hz- und die 135-Hz-Seitenbnder erzeugen, Schalter (28, 29, 30) und eine Butler-Matrix (31) mehreren auf einem Kreis angeordneten
Einzelantennen (32) zugefhrt. Eine Schalteinrichtung erzeugt zwei Schaltzustnde. Im ersten Schaltzustand werden die Phasenschieber (25, 26,
27) so gesteuert, da sie das obere bzw. das untere 15-Hz-Seitenband und das obere 135-Hz-Seitenband erzeugen. Im zweiten Schaltzustand
werden sie so gesteuert, da das jeweils entgegengesetzte Seitenband (unteres bzw. oberes) gebildet wird. Mittels der Butler-Matrix werden
hochfrequente Phasendrehfelder erzeugt. Die Ordnungszahlen der hochfrequenten Phasendrehfelder unterscheiden sich in den beiden
Schaltzustnden durch ihr Vorzeichen. Die hchste Ordnungszahl ist betragsmig kleiner oder gleich sechs und die Summe der Betrge der
Ordnungszahlen fr das Trgersignal und das obere bzw. untere 135-Hz-Seitenband ist gleich 9.
