Abstract : The patented pulse analyzer determines when a moving target has passed the closest-point-of-approach or when the target comes to within a predictable minimum range with respect to the antenna. The pulse analyzer is fed threshold count pulses from the threshold counter in the RF moving target detector. The first output from the pulse analyzer is the OGT (outgoing target) pulse which occurs when the peak-to-peak amplitude excursions of the antenna impedance characteristics of the RF detector begin to decrease. The second output is the INB (inner boundary) pulse which occurs when the target moves to within a predictable minimum range.
