Figure 2.2-21. Pickup Shoe low weight and cost. Based on previous studies and preliminary analysis, it was determined that the optimum conditions occurred with an 8-percent power loss in the array distribution, a 2-percent loss in the harness and slip ring from the array to the antenna pivot, and a 2-percent loss in the antenna distribution network. The basic design equations used to perform the analysis are as follows: • Conductor cross-sectional area
