Abstract : A mobile missile system that is automatic in operation and that is designed to simultaneously defend against a multiplicity of airborne targets as well as moving ground targets by using a time-sharing radar installation that performs the functions of acquisition, tracking and discrimination of the targets, simultaneous tracking of discrete units of the targets, transmission of command signals to the launchers for launching the missiles, and command control of the missiles after the launch, all on the same time-sharing basis.
