Abstract : The patent describes a two channel optical fuzing system for determining that a true target is present by initiating a gating pulse when the forward looking channel first detects what appears to be a target and initiating an arming signal when the rearward looking channel sees the same target. If the arming signal initiated during the time interval of the gate pulse, a decision circuit passes an output pulse to the firing circuit which produces a firing pulse to initiate the warhead.
