Like CMIS, it will have a conical scan
to provide a large measurement swath (approximately 850 km wide).
One is moved in a scanning pattern (for example, a conical scan
) to receive return pulses from the target and calculate beam-steering corrections.
The spiral scan is like a conical scan
, except that the angle of the cone increases or decreases, as shown in Figure 2.
In later radars, the beam was continuously rotated around the target (conical scan
) to derive the required information.
* Radar threats were predominantly red and used sequential 1obing, i.e., conical scan
and track while scan.
designed and built several versions of an electronic conical scan
jammer under the code names Peter and Saltpeter.
