Abstract : A broadband RF microwave source is used to generate a high-energy, narrow pulse which is used to provide the illuminating signal for an active radar system while simultaneously jamming other active radar systems. The generation of the RF microwave energy utilizes a spark gap generation systems. Jamming is accomplished by overload ringing of the receiver portion of the other radar system.
