Technique or method of transmitting radar data over narrow-bandwidth circuits; the procedure involves storing the radar video over the time required for the antenna to move through the beam width, and the subsequent sampling of this stored video at some periodic rate at which all of the range intervals of interest are sampled at least once each beam width or per azimuth quantum; the radar returns are quantized at the gap-filler radar site.
