Measuring radar PRI stagger during walkoff

Measuring radar PRI stagger during walkoff

By Mike Hertz of Teledyne LeCroy and Steve Shafer of DRS Technologies

Accurate time domain measurements, such as pulse repetition interval (PRI) stagger during walkoff have not been possible using traditional frequency domain equipment. With the advent of ultra-high-bandwidth, real-time oscilloscopes, and timing parameter tracking, electronic countermeasures (ECM) flightline tests such as gated PRI, PRI stagger variation, and parametric timing measurements of a demodulated pulse are now possible on an F-16 Aircraft configuration with coupler and measurement system.
