MULTIPLE FIRING

Electrically firing with delay blasting caps in a number of holes at one time.

M SYNCHRONIZATION

A linking arrangement between a camera lens and the flashbulb unit to allow a 15-millisecond delay of the shutter so that the bulb burns to its brightest point before the shutter opens.

MILLISECOND DELAY CAP

A delay cap with an extremely short (20500 thousandths of a second) interval between passing of current and explosion. Also known as short-delay detonator.

INSTANTANEOUS DETONATOR

A type of detonator that does not have a delay period between the passage of the electric current through the detonator and its explosion.

DEMURRAGE

A delay of vessel's departure or loading with cargo

IONOSPHERIC DELAY

The delay experienced by a wave or signal as it passes through the ionosphere

BASELINE DELAY

The time interval needed for the signal from a master station of a hyperbolic radionavigation system to travel the length of the baseline, introduced as a delay between transmission of the master and slave (or secondary) signals to make it possible to distinguish between the signals and to permit measurement of time differences.

CODING DELAY

An arbitrary time delay in the transmission of pulse signals. In hyperbolic radionavigation systems of the pulse type, the coding delay is inserted between the transmission of the master and slave (or secondary) signals to prevent zero or small readings, and thus aid in distinguishing between master and slave (or secondary) station signals.

EMISSION DELAY

1. A delay in the transmission of a pulse signal from a slave (or secondary) station of a hyperbolic radionavigation system, introduced as an aid in distinguishing between master and slave (or

ECHO

1. A wave which has been reflected or otherwise returned with sufficient magnitude and delay to be perceived. 2. A signal reflected by a target to a radar antenna. Also called RETURN. 3. The deflection or indication on a radarscope representing a target. Also called PIP, BLIP, RETURN.
