Abstract:

It is shown that the interrogation repetition period IRP of an interrogator can be recognized by a transponder and then used by it to both determine when the interrogator has elicited a predetermined number of replies called an adequate response and limit the interrogator to that number during each scan. This form of reply limiting by a transponder requires absolutely no change in the type of signals transmitted. Logic circuits that perform the required functions are provided. Author
