angle jamming

angle jamming

[′aŋ·gəl ‚jam·iŋ]
(electronics)
An electronic countermeasure in which azimuth and elevation information, from a scanning fire control radar present in the modulation components on the returning echo pulse, is jammed by transmitting a pulse similar to the radar pulse but with modulation information out of phase with the returning target angle modulation information.

Filippo Neri taught the Cross Eye/Other Angle Jamming Techniques course after the convention.
The US Air Force Wright Laboratory is soliciting proposals, due later this month, for a Monopulse Angle Jamming Integrated Countermeasure (MAJIC) program to explore ways to counter certain air-defense and tracking radars, thus preventing missile launch.
Otherwise, the jamming modulation imposed should be such that time interleaving can be achieved; square wave amplitude modulation for angle jamming falls into this category.
