Now, the only reference book available providing type and technical characteristics of virtually every antenna in the U.S. Navy fleet has been completely revised and updated. Shipboard Antennas, Second Edition gives you - naval ship design engineers, naval combat system engineers and ship electronic maintenance and electronic warfare operations personnel - all the latest size, weight, power, location and electrical data you need for successful, efficient antenna system design and integration of shipboard antennas. Shipboard Antennas, Second Edition explains the whats, why and hows of over 250 individual naval and commercial antennas, illustrating everything you need to integrate naval antennas into the complex electromagnetic environment of a modern ship. You'll get a full understanding of the many design constraints faced in naval antenna design - including space limitations, costs, radiation exposure, weight, electromagnetic distortion and power constraints. Shipboard Antennas, Second Edition features over twenty percent newly revised information, including newly added sections on the following: system integration - determining where an antenna should be located in order not to conflict with other elements of the ship's electromagnetic field; the use of ship antenna systems scaled and computer-aided modeling using math analysis for determining an antenna's potential range for any given location on the ship's topside; an in-depth analysis of the impact of important new radiation hazard exposure level restrictions; detailed descriptions of eight new naval antennas, including the new HF communications broadband antenna, and new H-field OMEGA navigation antenna, as well as the latest information on the updated SATCOM antenna and telmetry antenna. Shipboard Antennas, Second Edition also gives you detailed reviews and comprehensive explanation of the following: the historical development of naval antennas - particularly communication antennas - from rudimentary long wires strung high above deck, to wire-rope fans, broadband omni-directional HF vertical monopulse, cones, cages, VHF and UHF dipoles to today's satellite dishes; ship antennas as navigation aids at sea, with descriptions of uses including LORAN, OMEGA, TACAN, and NAVSAT, for which the various VLF and UHF direction finding antennas are used; naval radar antennas, including those used for surface search, 2-D and 3-D air search, surface navigation, air traffic control and weapons control systems; naval antenna applications in electronic warfare, including a technical explanation of the passive and active electronic countermeasures employed to detect and thwart enemy targets at sea; various specialty naval antennas, including Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) antennas, weather information (meteorology) sensors, and antennas for receiving and evaluating submarine activity and missile performance data (telemetry). If you are responsible for naval ship combat systems design and integration engineering, this may be the most important reference and engineering design guide you will ever purchase.
