Abstract : A lightweight range delay circuit containing a specially designed modulator and variable range-gate generator was developed to meet the need for accurate ranging circuits in small, lightweight combat surveillance radar systems. The circuit requirements were selected for compatibility with an experimental radar. The use of tunnel diode switches was the chief factor responsible for obtaining a simple, accurate circuit with good stability. Operation of the circuit is described in this report. (Author)
