Abstract:

An automatic navigational radar transponder is described. It is distinguished by the fact that to provide conjugation of the transponder with the Neptun, Don, and Donets marine radars and to identify navigation beacons, the transmitter has a smooth electronic wobbling inside the answer pulse and a multi-combination pulse-time coding. This radar transponder, for the purpose of a constant control of the performance of the beam without using measuring instruments, has a transmitter with a forced switch-in and a branching of part of the power emitted to the receiver and to the control circuit signalling the normal operation of the transponder by lighting of an electric bulb.
