Abstract : The patent describes a logic circuit for generating an acquiring and locking signal for locking the missile antenna to the main beam of an airborne missile control system antenna. The logic circuit detects and measures the peak automatic gain control voltage of the missile receiver as the missile antenna scans in one direction. After the target illuminating signal from the launching aircraft has been detected, the missile antenna scans in the other direction until the automatic gain control voltage of the missile receiver equals the previously measured voltage.
