High-performance radar networks have been deployed for homeland security Applications. Having the radars on a network allows for increased coverage via multiple radars, as well as the communication of situational awareness in real time to multiple remote users. The radars and networks exploit commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technology to be easily affordable for the wide-area surveillance needed for these applications. Implementing radar networks over the Internet enables the straightforward integration of operational systems. Results from a deployed three-node radar surveillance network covering western Lake Erie are presented. These results include the fusion of target tracks from the three radar nodes.
