Abstract : A technique for improving sidelobe canceller performance by blocking the canceller output signal upon sensing reduced main channel interference accompanied by an increased sidelobe canceller output. Two signal processing networks form the difference between successive output signals from a radar antenna and sidelobe canceller respectively. The difference signals are multiplied together and the product used to control passage and preclude utilization of the canceller output signal when reduced jamming interference occurs.
