Abstract:

The principles governing the simulation of radar signals in a supersonic trainer are presented along with brief description of the piezoelectric crystal and other components developed for this purpose. It is shown that the simulation requirements include the following condition that the intensity distribution of the supersonic beam is identical with that of the electromagnetic beam of the radar set. None of the requirements has been fully met in any supersonic trainer designed to date.
