Abstract : The patent relates to electronic apparatus for automatically determining the bearing center of received radar beams. Each received beam hit sequence is processed by a beamsplitter which essentially counts the number of hits which occur as the beam sweeps by a target and selects the median of the number of hits as the bearing center of the beam. A plurality of identical beam splitters are connected in a predetermined configuration such that substantially simultaneous processing of more than one received beam can be accomplished.
