This paper describes the process that was followed in the development of a real-time, embedded Tracking and Control Application (TCA) to be incorporated into a pulse-Doppler radar signal processing test and evaluation facility. The complete simulation and development process is described. Functional requirements are discussed, as well as algorithm selection, code development and system simulation. The porting of the TCA to the final target hardware and operating system, as well as the integration with the final system, are examined. An analysis of the success of the process followed is given and recommendations are made.
