AP 3302 Pt. 3

Section 1





In this chapter we have seen that pulses of r.f. energy radiated by a radar transmitter may be reflected from aircraft. The resulting echoes can be used to detect and to find the range, bearing and height of enemy aircraft so that fighters or missiles can be guided to an interception position in the sky.

We must now find out how these pulses are produced and radiated and how the reflected pulses are received and displayed in the radar installation.
