Procedure for Calculating the Power Density of a Parabolic Circular Reflector Antenna

Report ID
TM 90-145
February 01, 1990

This technical report details a procedure for calculating the mainbeam off-axis power density in the near- and far-field of a parabolic circular reflector antenna. In the report, the on-axis procedures of an earlier report are extended to off-axis analysis. Like its predecessors, it is intended for general use in system planning and evaluation and gives a worst-case estimate for radiation hazard assessment.
