The next breakthrough in the field of Electronic Warfare was the Westinghouse AN/ALQ-131
pod, fielded by the USAF
This was the first jamming pod, using re-programmable software with digital processor called VHSIC
(Very High Speed Integrated Circuit) that time, running on 1MHz.
The software of the pod, was able to track and predict the PRF of the threat, a capability was called RANRAP (Random Range Program).
The False Target Jamming
technique created 7~8 realistic targets, that had different sizes and some of those were placed closer/further than the jamming plane.
Similar capability was introduced by the NAVY
with the Sanders AN/ALQ-126
system built into the F-4, F-14, F-18, A-4, A-6, and A-7 planes.
