AbstractThis paper describes a digital computer program which is used to calculate certain performance parameters for a telemetry antenna on a flight vehicle. Ground tests of the antenna, or its mockup, are performed and readings taken of the observed gains. This gain pattern is in the form of paper tape which is converted to a computer, acceptable punched are format. The program was written for the IBM 360/65 computer operating under multiprogramming with a variable number of tasks. A visual representation of the pattern is presented and radar tracking site information is displayed in tabular form. Examples of predicted data and flight data are shown.
