Abstract:

Investigations have been carried out on the problems of producing short pulses and the necessary equipment for utilizing these pulses. Modulators capable of producing pulses as short as 0.02 micro sec have been built and tested. A receiver with an IF pass band of 35 mcps and a video amplifier and A-scope with a pass band of 35 mcps have been built and tested. Three different types of magnetrons, 725A, LVX, and 4J50 have been tested on short pulse operation with good results. Radar operational tests using short pulse equipment indicate that short pulses are quite valuable in combating confusion types of interference and in obtaining good signal definition, but are not recommended for long range operation, or where any types of electrical interference are present.
