Abstract

In this study, low angle monopulse DF error due to multipath is dealt with using even difference pattern in a monopulse system. It is shown that the complex angle processing based on this approach has a potential to solve the problem. The multipath problem is modelled using both the specular and the diffuse scattering, while the random nature of the latter is also taken into account.
