Abstract : The patent describes an automatic gain control wherein the gain is maintained at a level just low enough to prevent saturation by noise and clutter. The gain slowly increases at a lighly linear rate until a threshold value is exceeded; then the gain is rapidly reduced. Likewise, when a signal exceeding the threshold value is received, the gain is rapidly reduced to maintain a level below saturation.
