i)(k) [theta](k): The pitching angle [phi](k): The azimuth angle w(k): The measurement noise v(k): The process noise.
Refer to Fig 4, from which it can be easily observed that the slope of the graph at lower and upper angles of azimuth angle, m =180 decreases, which means the PPD is not constant for all angles of azimuth and elevation for larger values of distance d.
Above the housing is a resolver which is used to measure antenna azimuth angle.
where [theta] [member of] [0,[pi] ] is the signal's elevation angle measured from the positive z-axis; [phi] [member of] [0,2[pi] ] denotes the azimuth angle measured form the positive a>axis; [gamma] [member of] [0, [pi] /2] represents the auxiliary polarization angle; [eta] [member of] [-[pi], [pi] ] symbolizes the polarization phase difference.
