    An optimized ambiguity search method is described in this paper focusing on speed and reliability. The method has incorporated several existing fast ambiguity search concepts and the ambiguity search speed can be further improved. In addition to the improvement of the ambiguity search speed, special attention has been paid to the improvement of the reliability of the ambiguity search process. Seve... View full abstract»

    A low cost concept, called Doppler ratio detection (DRD), for suppressing the clutter residue of Doppler radars is described. The concept provides a simple way to establish a target detect-clutter reject threshold at each range cell, whether a MTI canceler only or a bank of Doppler filters is used. In its simplest form, the target detect/clutter reject threshold is based on the ratio of the magnit... View full abstract»

    The work studies the application of the morphological (structural) synthesis method of search for the new technical approaches. The method is based on the application of the theory of system, morphological and cluster analysis, methods of mathematics simulation and calculation experiments made by computer. The work shows how this method is used to synthesize the landing spacecrafts, hypersonic spa... View full abstract»

  • Wingtip generated wake vortices as radar target

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):27 - 30

    Previous radar wake vortex detection experiments have resulted in measured beam averaged values of radar reflectivity from wake vortices in clear air. We have employed average wind and thermodynamic variable output from a two dimensional wake vortex model in clear air and fog to predict radar reflectivity in a wake vortex on a one meter grid. The results agree well, compared to data in the literat... View full abstract»

    The Global Positioning System (GPS) has been used in many ways which were unimagined by its original planners and implementers. This paper discusses one such application; the surveillance of commercial aircraft in a developing airspace environment. GPS provides system users with the ability to determine their own position with an accuracy, reliability and cost that is unprecedented. Voice procedur... View full abstract»

  • Project Space Vision in retrospective

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):13 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (384 KB)

    Project Space Vision aimed to influence long-term space policy-makers through documenting visions and fundamental priorities, as seen through the eyes of the post-Apollo generation, for the coming 50 years of space activities. Within a strict thirty-day project time limit, several thousand potential target contributors were addressed using the Internet. Within a few weeks time, resulting inputs we... View full abstract»
