Eberhardt Rechtin and Richard Jaffe (both involved in NASAs DSN) published this paper (paywalled) on PLL-design and -performance back in 1955. It is referenced quite often, so I wanted to understand what makes a "Jaffe-Rechtin"-loop or -filter. I would have expected a wiki-article on a seemingly important concept after such a long time, but found ... nothing. Same for StackExchange.
From the abstract, I have the impression that a bandpass limiter in the loop is the distinctive element. Later JPL publications (this technical report f.e.) do mention bandpass limiting, but the term Jaffe-Rechtin-filter was apparently not formed in 1966.
On the other hand, I found some remarks in the IS-GPS redaction process (slide 2), that suggest that Jaffe-Rechtin-PLL is a vague term and needs clarification.
What do engineers mean when they speak about a Jaffe-Rechtin-PLL? What makes it special? Pointers to free publications are welcome if it would be lengthy to explain here.
