AbstractThe RCAF requested the National Research Council to design a receiver with fast recovery time after large-amplitute signals of long duration due either to clutter or electronic jamming. A CFAR output was also required, to avoid overloading the AN/FST-2 data transmission equipment in the presence of the common types of electronic jamming. The logarithmic receiver formed the basis of the design because of its large dynamic range. A video automatic gain control circuit was used to maintain the CFAR output. The receiver and its evaluation are described in this report.
