TRANSMISSION-LINE MISSILE ANTENNAS
Ronold W. P. King, Charles W. Harrison, Jr. , **
and David H. Denton, Jr. **
A class of protruding rocket antennas of low silhouette is analyzed. The ap-
proximate equivalent circuit of these structures is a shunt-driven transmission
line terminated in reactors of arbitrary value at each end. Expressions derived
for the currents in the circuit, as functions of the reactive terminations, are em-
ployed in calculating the radiation vectors of the antenna. The radiation resistance
is obtained by integrating the Poynting vector over the surface of a great sphere
enclosing the structure. The driving-point reactance of the antenna is determined
from transmission-line formulas, which may be modified appropriately to include
terminal zone effects.
