AbstractElectrical shock excitation of the input circuits of the intermediate-frequency amplifier of a radar system is discussed. The deleterious effects of shock from the trailing edge of a strong pulse are discussed. Fidelity of reproduction of the trailing edge of a high-amplitude pulse is shown to be related to the frequency at which the amplifier input circuit is resonant. The pulse fall time is shown to be an important factor in the choice of an intermediate frequency. Although the report is written with reference to a marine navigational radar having high definition at short range, it may be of value in the design of other radar systems where shock effects following a high-amplitude pulse cannot be tolerated.
