Abstract:

Describes a countermeasure for LORO lobe-on-receive-only tracking radars comprising a transmitter and a receiver which controls the transmitter. The transmitter radiates pulses on the radars frequency at a repetition rate that repeatedly sweeps over a range selected to include the unknown lobing frequency of the radar, the sweeps being alternately slow and fast. The receiver circuit receives the tracking radar signal and operates upon a fall in its intensity to halt the pulse frequency sweep and cause it to reverse at a slow rate.
