The book shows, step by step, the design, implementation, and testing of the antenna/telescope control system, from the design stage (analytical model) to fine tuning of the RF beam pointing (monopulse and conscan)
The purpose of this book is to present the implementation of the new theoretical developments in structural dynamics and control theory in the antenna and telescope industry. Also to present the significant improvement in pointing accuracy of the antenna and telescope when the presented techniques are implemented. This book fills the need in the antenna/telescope control techniques. For long time, since 1990 when the last book was published, there was no publication on the antenna/telescope/radar modeling and control.
