Abstract : This patent discloses an improved bracket decoder apparatus including an regenerative bracket decoder portion and a regenerative bracket decoder portion operates to generate enhanced bracket decode signals and regenerative bracket decode signals. The foregoing combination of decoder portions will allow digital display systems which use IFF information to detect all targets that are replying regardless of the IFF train spacing, even overlapping replies. The enhanced bracket decoder portion of the apparatus can be operated alone to detect all reply conditions except the one of overlapping replies. The apparatus is configured to provide presently used signals also, i.e., the bracket decode, the degarbled bracket decode, and the range and code information for each video reply. (JHD)
