Abstract : A method of remote detection of an electronic device, such as an electronic bomb fuze, which employs active electronic elements includes the steps of transmitting a radar beam through an object which potentially encloses a suspected bomb and receiving the reflections of the transmitted beam, using doppler radar techniques to detect signal phase and amplitude modulations, if any, and processing the reflections to provide an output resulting from any detected modulations which would indicate the presence of active electronic elements within the searched object.
