Abstract : In a repeat-back jammer of the type used to deceive range tracking radar systems, wherein tracking is accomplished by a gate at the input of said radar system and a servo system which adjusts the relative time position of the input gate to coincide with echo pulses returning from a distant target, and wherein said jammer includes a repeat-back amplifier which transmits a jamming pulse for each said echo pulse the initial jamming pulse being so delayed with respect to said echo pulse that only a minor portion of said jamming pulse coincides with said input gate, said jamming pulse being of sufficient amplitude that said minor portion obscures the echo pulse, the improvement which comprises; time delay means to increase said initial dealy of said jamming pulse with respect to said echo pulse in response to a control signal, wave generating means to supply a control signal for said time delay means and a multiplier means for multiplying said signal by 1 - microns(o)beta(o) interconnecting said time delay means and said wave generating means, wherein microns(o)beta(o) is the open loop transfer function of said servo system.
