Some basic questions about radio interferometer (Direction Finding)

  1. Dec 12, 2013 #1
    Hello,

    I’m a beginner to interferometer technology. While reading the attached article about this technology I find two formulas are missing. Please help me with them.

    1. On page 5-8.8: rms angular accuracy.
    2. In Table 3 on page 5-8.9: DF Accuracy.

    As far as I understand the space between antennas shall be
    a. Great enough for better accuracy
    and
    b. Small enough (< λ/2) to avoid ambiguity.

    Is that correct?

    At last I have a question to „gross error rate“? What does it mean in interferometer? You can find this term here: http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20090079634.

    Thanks in advance
