Abstract : There is disclosed herein a method of applying an active electronic countermeasure (ECM) False Target technique against MTI staggered pulse threat radar. This is accomplished by radar circuits which digitally transfer false target arrays grouped about low pulse repetition frequency (PRF) pulses to high PRF pulses, when they are present. The circuits of the invention then phase shift each transferred array with respect to the fundamental system clock rate to achieve proper alignment.
