Abstract : A radar range unit using digital circuitry of the type employed in electronic counters was constructed and operated with radar sets in three trial installations. Results showed that the digital unit is feasible, is capable of greater accuracy and higher rates of measurement than conventional units, and provides range information directly available for use in navigational computers.
