Abstract : This application discloses a technique using sector antennas on a plurality of decoy transmitters such that each antenna only has to cover a portion of the required azimuth coverage but the total azimuth is covered at all times by all the decoy transmitters. Switching between sectors of the various decoy transmitters is done to provide pseudo-blinking decoy field.
