Abstract:

Moving the apparent aircraft position from wingtip to wingtip by electronic means is given the name electronic jinking. Properly timed, this technique can be employed to exploit the intrinsic instability of a missile at close ranges and cause a substantial miss. Physical evasive maneuvers by the aircraft are not nearly as effective.
