In this paper, we propose the operation procedures of the 1-channel monopulse receiver which achieves the new configuration. Also, we analyzed the monopulse ratio and the target angle accuracy of the fabricated receiver by using the monopulse signal generator developed for verifying the proposal equipment. As a result, it is apparent that the monopulse ratio of the proposal receiver is equal to that of the 3-channel monopulse receiver. Also, the fabricated receiver exhibits the target angle accuracy with fewer than 0.1 RMS. The proposal receiver achieves the simple receiver configuration and the simple tracking procedures, as contrasted with the 3-channel monopulse receiver. Also, the proposal receiver has advantages in terms of size, weight, cost and power. Because the proposal monopulse receiver requires 1-channel receiver and needs not the signal processor in comparison with 3-channel monopulse receiver which requires 3-channel receiver and need the signal processor.
