Abstract : The first motion detector includes a missile which is mounted in a conventional manner in a launch tube or relative to a launch rail and has magnetic means for producing a magnetic field that is projected outwardly from the missile into the detection range of a detector that detects when the field moves axially and thereby produces an output signal which indicates the exact time that the missile moves in an axial direction.
