Abstract

The multilevel physical optics (MLPO) algorithm has been adapted to compute radiation patterns of the triple reflector antenna of RATAN-600 radio telescope in new operation modes. These operation modes facilitate tracking of cosmic sources of radiation at arbitrary azimuthal angles in the range of ±30°. The resulting radiation patterns are compared to those obtained via ray tracing analysis.
