Nevertheless, whenever the radar is scanning, the number of sweeps to be integrated is automatically computed through the navigation data, according to the chosen resolution of the polar plot.
To evaluate trending ability, four-quadrant plot and polar plot methodology was applied to the change in [CI.sub.BIO] and [CI.sub.PAC] between the time points [22, 23].
The measured polar plot of co-polar and XP radiation pattern with and without SRRs is shown in Figure 12.
The best way to check for causality issues is to use a Polar Plot, a graph of the imaginary versus the real (FIGURE 5); a Smith Chart, a special case Polar Plot, can also be used.
A graph of the UVI was then produced on a simple polar plot at each of the three sites.
MFCS can conduct final protective fires (FPF), precision registrations, grid, polar plot, and shift missions.
It also introduces a clever new polar plot to display fabric data.
The ballbar tracks spindle movement to +/-0.5 micron (.000020"), weighs errors based on the measured values, and converts the ballbar data into an error-exaggerating polar plot of the machine's true movement.
Renish0aw's diagnostic software calculates machine errors, weighs those errors based upon the measured values, and converts the ballbar data into a polar plot of the machine's true movement.
It sends a short-duration, coherent, line-focus acoustic pulse into a fluid (typically water) and detects the reflected echoes from an object submerged in the fluid, creating a 2-D or polar plot. The device operates over a wide frequency range with a bandwidth of 5 to 25 MHz.
Accompanying diagnostic software calculates error weights and values, and converts the ballbar data into a polar plot of the machine's true movement.
