Abstract:

Tests were conducted to evaluate Crow-Crack procedures, specifically using the Nike Ajax transponder guidance unit mounted in a Strategic Air Command aircraft. During weapons system evaluation tests in March 1958, it was found that an ECM-emitting aircraft would reinforce other emitters or screen quiet aircraft when it is very close to the defended area. These aircraft were theoretically destroyed, but they continued aiding other threats to the defended area. This caused the Air Force and the Army to come to unrealistic conclusions. It was determined, therefore, that a method was needed to notify the aircraft, after being theoretically destroyed, to turn off its ECM equipment. Author
