Abstract : The patent application describes a technique for detecting and eliminating 'sea-spike' interference in a return radar-signal. A series of signal delay means in cooperation with associated subtractors are utilized to detect particular sea-spike modulation interference frequencies. Detection of these modulation frequency components causes activation of means for preventing the sea-spike contaminated return signal from being further processed.
