MetadataShow full item record
A multi-position waveguide switch including a cylindrical housing supporting radially extending waveguides, a switching assembly composed of a stack of disks each having input and output ports interconnected by waveguide sections, and a mechanism for selectively translating the stack of disks to selected axial positions within the cylindrical housing such that a selected disk is in alignment and communication with certain predetermined ports of the radially extending waveguides. By selective axial translation of the disk assembly, a selected disk may be interposed between the radially extending waveguide supported by the housing to provide a selected routing path for microwave energy to the waveguides supported by the housing and through the selected disk.
