Abstract:

Results of an operational evaluation of present VT-fuze countermeasures equipment against saturation fire are set forth. The purpose of these tests was to evaluate the effectiveness of the VT-fuze countermeasures equipment against 18-gun volley fire under high- and low-angle, early armed and CVT conditions with fuzes selected so as to occur as close together in the frequency band as possible. The following equipment was tested against saturation fire the ANMLQ-8 XL-1, XL-2, and XE-2 and the ANMRT-4 XL-1 which are swept-repeater jammers and the ANTLQ-2, a repeater jammer. The effective range of repeater jammers is severely reduced by multiple-gun fire. The degree of reduction is theoretically proportional to the square root of the number of fuzes in the jammer passband at any one time. However, the results do not stay within 25 percent of these figures. The ANMRT-4 XL-1 results were too eratic for the equipment to be considered effective against saturation fire. Author
