Abstract : Range gating is a process of quantizing range (time) into small intervals in Moving Target Indication Radar sets. The principal purpose of range gating is to eliminate the so-called collapsing loss effect that is inherent to delay line canceler filters. In range gating, each range gate opens in sequence just long enough to sample the video waveform corresponding to a different range interval in space. Since noise from other time intervals is excluded the collapsing loss does not take place. This report deals with the design of an electronic delay line which generates the sequential gating pulses for range-gate filters. (Author)
