Abstract : A system for testing the performance and vulnerability of proximity fuzes under simulated live hardware conditions. The performance of the system is evaluated by the application of a repeater jammer signal within the cutoff range of the proximity fuze which is mounted in a free space test site. Beyond the cutoff range, the vulnerability of the proximity fuze is tested by the application of an unlimited number of modulated interference jamming signals which simulate approach and intercept of interference jamming sources.
