Abstract : The invention involves an electronic countermeasure technique which is used against a pulse compression, random PRF, frequency diverse radar by stretching a pulse received from the radar before returning it. By progressively delaying the pulse until its delay is greater than the range gate of the radar, the return pulse to the radar is either blocked entirely or else it is received as a spurious, misleading echo.
