Italian term or phrase: Pilota di cadenza
I come across this term in a document dealing with radars but cannot find an English equivalent.
I get the technical gist of it, but am unable to find a translation.

Unfortunately no context, just in a list.

Synchronization signal

Another term is simply a "clock", although this is used in a specialized hardware design context.

This is a signal providing a frequency reference. Depending on the use it could be for example a firing rate.

For the second instance I would use 'reference frequency'.

Clock is used in digital system design.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Indeed it is for firing rate and I was going along the route of "clock" but your answer fits better in the general context of the list.

Asker: I have come across another instance of this term along with "oscillatore pilota", and the text is clearly speaking of Tx antenna components as it is a diagram. Therefore, maybe "clock" is the correct reply?
