Abstract : An FM doppler fuze system comprising means for transmitting a signal having a carrier frequency modulated by a band of random noise, means for mixing the transmitted signal with a return echo signal modified by the doppler effect of the relative movement between the fuze and a target, and means for deriving an output adapted to actuate the fuze from the low frequency doppler portion of the output from said mixing means.
