It is an active systems in that receivetransmit transponders are employed in a masterslave relationship. The system can accommodate several transponders operating in differing frequency bands with range resolution of less than 30 meters. Resolution improves to LSB accuracy, or 10 meters, if one pair of transponders are used. The system is designed such that inter-vehicle can readily be incorporated in a PCM data stream. Keywords include Inter-Vehicle Ranging and Distance Measuring.
