Research is concerned with two diverse areas relating to radar-beacon systems: (1) solid state microwave component evaluation and design; and (2) coherent radar-beacon system analysis. A number of tunnel diode detection devices are discussed with particular emphasis being placed on the reflection type tunnel diode amplifier. Theoretical gain curves are given as a function of circuit parameters cor C-band operation. The method to be used in designing the amplifier is discussed. The coherent beacon is analyzed to determine the extent of system degradation due to frequency instability. Velocity errors and spectral broadening in two-way Doppler systems are also discussed.
