Abstract : The patent describes a device for use in an active-passive fuzing system to guard against the malfunctioning of the fuze due to jamming signals transmitted by the target. A gate circuit is used to prevent an enabling signal to be passed to the warhead detonator until there is jamming signal fall-off in the guard detector and there is an increase in signal strength in the passive detector.
