Abstract : A high-power (peak), high-sensitivity, self-pulsed oscillator-detector, employing the N67 triode tube in a reaction grid detection (RGD) circuit has been designed for possible use in proximity fuzes for mortars. Tests of unpotted models show the new oscillator to have a peak radiated power of about 500 mw, and an r-f sensitivity of about 25 v. The new circuit also provides high resistance to countermeasures.
