SubjectMZPI radar; noise levels
AbstractNoise factors of the Canadian MZPI and the British Admiralty Type 980 Radar Receiver have been measured using both the signal-generator and fluorescent-lamp methods. An improved preamplifier for the MZPI which lowers the over-all noise factor from approximately 14.0 to 10.4 decibels is described. Possible future improvements to the MZPI are suggested.
