The transformation effect of the duration of electromagnetic influences from an accelerated moving source was predicted by W. Ritz in 1908 on the basis of the ballistic theory of light [1; 2]. According to it, the source additionally reports its speed v to the emitted light, moving relative to the source with the standard speed c (speed of light), and relative to the receiver - with the speed c + v. Then, with the accelerated motion of the source towards the observer, the wave fronts, acquiring ever greater velocities at the moments of emission, catch up with each other, reducing the wavelength and pulse duration. If the acceleration of the source is directed away from the observer, the crests of light waves diverge, increasing the wavelength and pulse duration.
