In the measurement plane parallel to the system of measurement (sagittal plane), the results showed that the rotary knee joint evinces mobility between a fixed marker located on the thigh and the rotary joint estimated from the magnitude [r.sub.JC/B,] which is not constant.
Presented are S-parameter measurements of the straight and bent monopoles, with and without the introduction of the rotary joint. Minimal deviations are observed after including both bends and rotary joints in the antenna construct, indicating the design modifications have not degraded the antenna's performance over the system's operating frequency range (500-3000 MHz).
Discovery astronauts will spend an extra day at the International Space Station to further study a damaged rotary joint. The joint, which allows the outpost's solar array to track the Sun to power the station, has been fouled by metal shavings that could cause damage.
