Abstract : Fuzing incorporating a doppler signal for establishing warhead fuzing time. More particularly, circuitry is provided in which the doppler is detected, integrated and used upon exceeding the level of a preset threshold device to enable two preset counters to effect fuzing only if their individual preset counts are achieved within a time established by their associated timers. A third, higher count, preset counter effects the fuzing if not earlier realized from one of the counters, while a dropout detector responsive to the threshold device output effects the fuzing in cases where the threshold level is exceeded and then lost.
