Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DETECTING AND/OR TRACKING A PROJECTILE
Abstract:
A device for detecting and/or tracking a projectile comprises at least one receiving antenna, for receiving at least an electromagnetic signal emitted by at least one radar, at least one amplifier configured to amplify the electromagnetic signal received by the receiving antenna, and at least one emitting antenna, wherein said emitting antenna is configured to return, at an output of the device, an amplified electromagnetic signal for calculating data indicative of the trajectory of the projectile based at least on said amplified electromagnetic signal. A system for detecting a projectile comprises at least one transmitting device mounted on the projectile, at least one radar configured to sense at least an electromagnetic signal produced and sent by said transmitting device, wherein signals emitted from the projectile are limited to the electromagnetic signal sent by the transmitting device, and at least one processing unit, configured to calculate data indicative of the trajectory of the projectile, based on the sensing of the electromagnetic signal.
