(electronics)
A radarscope display in which the target appears as two horizontal pulses or blips, one extending to the right and one to the left from a central vertical time base; when the radar antenna is correctly aimed in azimuth at the target, both blips are of equal amplitude; when not correctly aimed, the relative blip amplitudes indicate the pointing error; the position of the signal along the baseline indicates target distance; the display may be rotated 90° when used for elevation aiming instead of azimuth aiming.
