    • D.

      D. Plan position.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. A scope.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a. A scope. A scope is a radar display indicator that displays range or velocity. It provides a visual representation of the radar data, showing the distance or speed of detected objects. The A scope is typically used for displaying range information, while the B scope is used for displaying velocity information. Range height and plan position are not radar display indicators that specifically display range or velocity.

  • 33. 

    33. (411) When determining a radar’s azimuth, the

    • A.

      A. wider the HBW, the poorer the resolution.

    • B.

      B. wider the VBW, the greater the resolution.

    • C.

      C. narrower the HBW, the poorer the resolution.

    • D.

      D. narrower the VBW, the greater the resolution.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. wider the HBW, the poorer the resolution.
    Explanation
    The azimuth of a radar refers to the horizontal angle at which it detects an object. The HBW (Horizontal Beam Width) determines the width of the radar beam in the horizontal direction. A wider HBW means that the radar beam covers a larger area, resulting in a lower resolution. This is because the radar beam is spread out over a wider area, making it more difficult to accurately determine the exact location of an object. Therefore, the wider the HBW, the poorer the resolution.

    34. (412) What IR detector device requires a bias current or voltage to operate?

    • A.

      A. Photovoltaic.

    • B.

      B. Photographic.

    • C.

      C. Photoemissive.

    • D.

      D. Photoconductive.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Photoconductive.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is d. Photoconductive. A photoconductive device is a type of IR detector that operates by changing its electrical conductivity when exposed to infrared radiation. To function properly, a bias current or voltage is required to provide the necessary electrical energy for the device to detect and respond to IR radiation. Photovoltaic devices convert light directly into electricity, photographic devices are used to capture images, and photoemissive devices emit electrons when exposed to light. None of these devices require a bias current or voltage to operate.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    36. (412) IR energy an object emits is a function of its temperature, but the amount it emits at any given moment of time is determined by

    • A.

      A. its ability to dissipate heat.

    • B.

      B. its ability to hold heat.

    • C.

      C. the inherent temperature.

    • D.

      D. the material itself.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. its ability to hold heat.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is b. its ability to hold heat. The amount of IR energy that an object emits at any given moment of time is determined by its ability to hold heat. This means that objects with a higher heat capacity will emit more IR energy compared to objects with a lower heat capacity, even if they have the same temperature. Heat capacity is a measure of how much heat energy an object can absorb or release without changing its temperature. Therefore, an object's ability to hold heat directly affects the amount of IR energy it emits.

    37. (413) Most IR missiles operate in the region of

    • A.

      A. 1 to 5 microns.

    • B.

      B. 6 to 10 microns.

    • C.

      C. 7 to 12 microns.

    • D.

      D. 10 to 15 microns.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. 1 to 5 microns.
    Explanation
    Most IR missiles operate in the region of 1 to 5 microns. This is because this range falls within the mid-infrared region, which is commonly used for IR missile detection and tracking. In this range, the atmosphere is relatively transparent, allowing for efficient transmission of IR radiation. Additionally, many materials, such as metals and certain gases, emit significant amounts of IR radiation in this range, making it easier for IR missiles to detect and track targets.

  • 38. 

    38. (413) What IR seeker generates an FM signal directly proportional to the amount of target displacement from the center of the seeker scan?

    • A.

      A. Spin.

    • B.

      B. Image.

    • C.

      C. Staring.

    • D.

      D. Conical.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Conical.
    Explanation
    A conical IR seeker generates an FM signal directly proportional to the amount of target displacement from the center of the seeker scan. This means that as the target moves away from the center of the seeker's scan, the FM signal produced by the conical IR seeker will increase. This type of seeker is designed to track and target moving objects by detecting their displacement from the center of the scan.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    39. (413) What IR seeker uses many detectors and each one detects a small portion of a scene?

    • A.

      A. Staring.

    • B.

      B. Scanning.

    • C.

      C. Chopping.

    • D.

      D. Spinning.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Staring.
    Explanation
    An IR seeker is a device used to detect and track infrared radiation emitted by a target. Staring IR seekers use many detectors, each one covering a small portion of the scene. This allows for a high-resolution image of the scene to be created by combining the outputs of all the detectors. Scanning, chopping, and spinning are other methods used in IR seekers, but they do not involve using multiple detectors to cover the scene. Therefore, the correct answer is a. Staring.

    • B.

      B. active infrared countermeasures.

    • C.

      C. the deployment of self-protection flares.

    • D.

      D. the introduction of smoke into engine exhaust.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. active infrared countermeasures.
    Explanation
    Using a modulated high intensity IR energy to break an IR missile's lock refers to the use of active infrared countermeasures. This involves emitting a strong infrared signal to interfere with the missile's infrared seeker, causing it to lose track of its target. This technique is an example of actively countering the missile's guidance system, rather than passively relying on the natural environment or deploying other defensive measures like flares or smoke.

    42. (415) What is one disadvantage of active MAWS?

    • A.

      A. It operates only in the ultraviolet frequency spectrum.

    • B.

      B. It is unable to pull targets out of clutter.

    • C.

      C. Can be tracked by passive detection.

    • D.

      D. It uses Pulse Doppler radar.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Can be tracked by passive detection.
    Explanation
    Active MAWS (Missile Approach Warning System) emits electromagnetic signals to detect and track incoming missiles. One disadvantage of active MAWS is that it can be tracked by passive detection. Passive detection systems do not emit any signals, making them harder to detect and track compared to active systems. This puts active MAWS at a disadvantage as it can be easily identified and potentially targeted by enemy passive detection systems.

      B. impedance remains constant when the current changes.

    • C.

      C. current through the device is proportional to the applied voltage.

    • D.

      D. current through the device is not proportional to the applied voltage.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. current through the device is not proportional to the applied voltage.
    Explanation
    A nonlinear device is characterized by the fact that the current through the device is not proportional to the applied voltage. In other words, the relationship between current and voltage is not a straight line. This means that as the voltage changes, the current does not change in a linear manner. Nonlinear devices are commonly found in electronic circuits and can have complex behaviors and characteristics.
