CW-Doppler Guidance Technology

  • D. A. James
Chapter

Abstract

An outline of the principles of the CW-Doppler seeker has been given already in section 2.3, and derivations of the Doppler frequency spectra appear in chapter 5. The purpose of the present chapter is to present a detailed account of the signal processing in the receiver, of the properties of the illuminator and of the effects of external factors on the guidance system.
