Abstract : This invention relates to ordnance fuzes of the radio proximity type. More particularly, it is a feature of this invention to provide improvements in the fuze system. The progression time system provides ordnance fuzes that respond only to signals that increase in amplitude, at a rate within certain limits, for at least a predetermined time. Signals reflected from a target that the fuze is approaching have the necessary build-up characteristics. It is most unlikely that noise and microphonic signals will have the required build-up characteristics. Furthermore, because the fuze is responsive only to a relatively selective signal, jamming is made correspondingly more difficult.
