1o claims. l

My invention relates to radio locator systems and to methods of and means for recording the object location infomation received by an object locator system.

An object of the invention is to provide an improved method of and means for recording radio locator information.

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved method of and means for recording radio locator information on a low speed recorder such as a facsimile recorder.

Still another object of the invention is to provide an improved method of and means for obtaining a record that indicates clearly the location of objects to the right and to the left of the radio locator system.

In one embodiment of the invention, the radio locator is of the pulse-echo type having either a transmitter or a receiver that is switched alternately to a pair of antennas that have directivity to the right and to the left, respectively. The reected pulses are applied to a cathode ray indicator tube which has its time sweep axis displaced in the vertical direction synchronously with the left-right antenna switching. The resulting right and left images on the screen of the indicator tube are projected by means of a suitable lens system, upon the mosaic screen of a cathode ray storage tube. The stored images are 1 then reconverted to electrical signals by scanning the storage mosaic slowly with an electron beam. These signals are supplied to a recorder in which the scanning is synchronous with the scanning of the storage mosaic.

Preferably, the scanning of the storage mosaic is in opposite directions for the right and left images so that they may be recorded to the right and to the left, respectively, of a center line on the record representing zero distance.

The invention will be better understood from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a circuit and block diagram of a pulse-echo system embodying my invention,

Figure la is a View of the screen end of the cathode ray indicator tube shown in Fig, l,

Figurelb is a view of the'record that is obtained when the image on the indicator tube is as shown in Fig. la, and

Figure 2 is a view in perspective of the cathode ray indicator and storage tubes which shows the direction of scanning in the two tubes.

In the several figures, similar parts are indicated by similar reference characters.

Referring to Fig. 1 of the drawings.' a high fre-V quency radio transmitter I Il is pulse modulated by means of a pulse modulator II'and a pulse generator I2 to radiate short radio pulses alternately to the right and to the left from a pair of antennas I3 and I4, respectively. The transmitter pulses may also be applied over a conductor I6 to a receiver to function as initial or time reference pulses. The keying or modulating pulses preferably are applied to the keyer I I through a delay circuit I5. The antennas I3 and I6 may be two dipoles in parabolic reflectors whichrare positioned to radiate to the right and to the left. The antennas I3 and IB are connected alternately to the transmitter by means of suitable leftright switching means I1 which may be driven by a motor (not shown). The transmitted pulses may occur at the rate of 1700 per second and have a duration of 0.3 Vmicro-seconds; the switching from left to right may occur at the rate of 30 per second, that is, on leitl for Vm second and on right for 1/60 second. I'hese values are given merely by way of example.

The reflected pulses are picked up by a suitable antenna I8 and supplied to the receiver I9 which amplies and demodulates them. They are then applied with positive polarity to the control grid 2I of a cathode ray tube 22 which is biased near electron beam cut-o.

The cathode ray tube 22 may be of conventional design having a uorescent screen 2t and two pairs of defiecting plates 24 and 2t positioned at right angles to each other. A sawtooth sweep or timing voltage is produced by a sawtooth generator 2l and applied to the plates 2t to deflect the cathode ray horizontally at a repetition rate of 1700 sweeps per second in the example being described.

A relay switch arm 2B is operated synchronous- 1y with the left-right antenna switching to apply voltage from a battery 29 to the deflecting plates 2t whereby the cathode ray of the tube 22 is defiected up or down to give an upper image of reiiecting objects to the right when the antenna radiation is toward the right and to give a lower image oi reiiecting objects to the left when the antenna radiation is toward the left. Such images are illustrated in Fig. la where objects A and B to the right and an object C to the left are indicated.

Preferably, the horizontal scanning line is widened, in effect, by also applying to the vertical deflecting plates 26 a high frequency sine wave voltage from a suitable source 3i.

.In order to record the reflecting object indications that appear on the iiuorescent screen 23,

the "right and leit" images are projected by means of a suitable lens system 32v upon a storage screen 33 of a cathode ray storage tube 34 such as a television pick-up tube of the low velocity beam type. Thus the images are stored on the screen 33 whereby they may be scanned slowly enough to obtain a signal that can be recorded on a comparatively slow speed recorder.

Referring brieily to the structure of the tube 34, the tube has a. low velocity beam gun comprising a cathode 3B, a control grid 31, a first anode 39 and a second anode 4I. Ring electrodes 42 and 43 are provided to slow down the electron beam as it approaches the storage screen 33. In the example illustrated, the signal taken off the screen 33 by the low velocity beam appears across an output resistor 44 which is connected between the back plate of the screen 33 and ground. The horizontal and vertical deilections of the low velocity beam maybe obtained by means of two pairs of deflecting coils H and V, respectively.

The stored image on the mosaic 33 is scanned by means of a triangular current wave, repre.

sented by the graph 45, which is supplied to the horizontal deecting coils H. In order to scan the right and left indications alternately, rectangular pulses of current are supplied to the verticaldefleeting coils V from a battery 46 through a switch arm 41 operated by a cam 43. The direction of scanning is indicated in Fig. 2 by the arrows on the dotted line 49, the scanning being in one direction across the right indications and in the opposite direction across the left indications.

A high frequency sine wave deilecting current is also supplied to the vertical defiecting coils V from an oscillator 5| The output of oscillator 5I is applied between ground and the center point of the battery 46 through a transformer 52. The purpose of this sine wave deilection is to provide a wide scanning path for the electron beam so that the image spots will be completely scanned.

The recorder indicated at 53 may be of a type commonly employed in facsimile systems. In the example illustrated, it is a carbon paper recorder comprising a drum 54 having a spiral scanning strip thereon and having a printer bar (not shown) which is actuated by the output signal of the storage tube 34 after suitable amplication by a direct-current amplifier 56.

The triangular scanning wave 45 is produced by means of a potentiometer 51 comprising a resistor 58 and an arm 59 that is rotated in synchronism with and at the same rate as the recorder drum 54 at the rate of one-half revolution per second, for example. The potentiometer resistor 58 has its two halves connected in parallel with respect to a battery 6I whereby the deiiecting current supplied from the arm 59 increases and then decreases as the arm is rotated to produce the triangular current wave 45. The mechanical coupling of the scanning drum and the potentiometer arm is such that the recorder scans the left half of a paper strip 62 while the left image indications on the mosaic are being scanned in one direction and scans the right half of the paper while the "right image indications on the mosaic are being scanned in the opposite direction. As a result the recorded image is of the character shown in Fig. 1b where the distances to objects at the right or at the left of the locator system are measured from the center or zero line of the paper strip 62.

In some cases it may be desirable to record only the signal reiiected from one of the directions of signal transmission and/or reception,

For example, there may be a faint mark on the right side of the paper strip 52 that is so poorly dei-ined that it is difficult to determine whether it was made by a signal reected from the right or caused by an irregularity in the recorder such as an irregularity in the scanning spiral or in the printer bar. Since such an irregularity probably would not be duplicated on the other half of the scanning spiral or printer bar, a check can be made as to whether the faint mark represents a signal by recording the signal reflected from the right upon both the right and left sides of the paper strip to see whether the mark is also recorded on the left side of the paper, which would indicate that a reflected signal caused the mark.

The above described check can be made while continuing to radiate signal in a plurality of directions successively (in the directions left and right in the example illustrated) by holding the switch arm 41 against either the upper switch contact point or against .the lower switch contact point during at least one cycle of triangular deflection, the position of the switch 41 depending upon whether it is the left or right signal that is to be recorded. Thus thecathode ray of the storage tube is caused to scan back along the same path that it just traced. In the particular design shown in Fig. 1, the switch 41 may be thrown manually to either its upper or lower position by mechanically disconnecting the cam 48 from the motor drive and then tuning the cam manually to the desired switch position.

It will be apparent that the invention is not limited to the specific left-right antenna switching arrangement that has been illustrated. For example, a rotating directive antenna might be utilized as illustrated in application Serial No. 500,737, filed on the same day as the present application, now issued as Patent No. 2,403,562, on July 9, 1946, and entitled Recorder for radar system; that is, a sharply directive continuously rotating antenna might be switched to radiate to the right while rotating through about 10 degrees and to next radiate to the left while rotating through about 10 degrees.

It should be understood that the desired antenna directivty may be obtained by the receiving antenna system if desired, rather than by the 50 transmitter antenna system. For example, the

left-right antennas corresponding to antennas I4 and I3 may be a pair of directive receivery antennas that are switched successively and the transmitter antenna system may then be nondirective.
