    If modern airborne radar systems are to function properly, the radar antenna radiation patterns must meet certain specifications. Until recently, most radar antennas were designed and tested in a clean antenna environment, i.e., there is no near field scattering from host structures or radome effects. However, these higher order effects are the matter of increasing concern with added performance d... View full abstract»

    With applications of systems integration technology to advanced aircrafts, high-speed and high-capacity optical fiber communication networks should be employed to support airborne broadband communication services. To guarantee real-time multiuser communications over a network, the selection of medium-access schemes is critical for avionics applications. In this paper, we briefly discuss the issues...

    The performance of mobile military communications could be improved if the next generation equipment would be designed from the systems approach, not limited to any existing solutions. The capabilities of software and microprocessors should be utilized to enhance the primary functionality of the devices and a comprehensive study of antennas, wave propagation and mechanical aspects should be includ...

    In July and October 1995, a large-scale airborne SAR experiment was conducted in the Yuma Proving Ground, Yuma, Arizona, to investigate ground penetration radar phenomenology and buried target detection. This paper describes the Yuma experiment and measurement results for many tactical, utility, and environmental targets deployed in the test View full abstract»

    The tests developed and used during the integration phase of a project are similar to the tests used during the factory production phase of a project. In order to reuse the integration tests in the factory, the test conditions, test equipment, and test procedures need to be identical. Reusing the integration tests for factory testing takes additional effort at the beginning of the project but is c... View full abstract»

    A flexible test bed radar architecture is described which includes an integrated RF electronics package that can support multiple radar applications, including surveillance, fire control, target acquisition, and tracking. This type of architecture can significantly reduce the cost, power, size, and weight of electronics on future weapon delivery platforms. The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is dev...
