    Proposes a control architecture for an efficient management of a multifunctional rotating phased array radar. For a true exploitation of the radar's capabilities a highly complex control computer is necessary. A functional architecture is presented that can be implemented on a multiprocessor computer called the Radar Management Computer View full abstract»

    Over the past two to three decades one has seen an increasing flexibility of radars, resulting from new techniques and system architectures. Although this particularly applies to the detection and tracking of air targets (aircraft, missiles, re-entry bodies, artillery shells etc) the statement is also true for surface target detection. The new techniques and system architectures include flexible, ... View full abstract»

  • Parameter optimisation in phased array radar

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):3/1 - 3/5

    Parameter optimisation in the search function of phased array radar is surveyed. The boundary between the search and tracking functions is taken to be the establishment of a confirmed detection. One must distinguish between the optimum choice of parameters in the design process, where the objective is to achieve a specified track formation (confirmed detection) range against a given approaching ta...

    Discusses the design of the DART radar system. A general purpose minicomputer was selected for the radar management task, and several DEC PDP 11 models were benchmarked for the application. A distributed database approach was adopted, and several control system architectures were considered. A broadcast system based on Ethernet was chosen. Ethernet was also used for the exchange of signal processo... View full abstract»

  • The real-time control of, and operator interface for, DART

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):5/1 - 5/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (200 KB)

    Describes the radar management and real time control systems designed and developed for the Demonstration of Advanced Radar Techniques (DART) radar. The radar management system controls the distributed radar subsystems by a sophisticated Ethernet control system aided by real time control signals. The paper outlines the radar management, Ethernet and control hardware and describes the real-time and... View full abstract»

    Describes ART, an adaptive radar testbed which is the subject of a collaborative programme between the Ministry of Defence, ARE Portsdown and Siemens Plessey Radar, Cowes. The aim of the programme is to put an adaptive multifunction radar (MFR) into the field in the early part of 1991. This will become a testbed used to demonstrate the technology and prove the functionality of a real time adaptive... View full abstract»

    Describes how Siemens Plessey Radar have developed a real time radar control process for MESAR, a multifunction radar test bed. The first phase of the MESAR project was completed with the delivery, to the ARE Funtington test range, of an adaptive antenna and data recording system in August 1988. Since then the equipment has undergone extensive and successful trials, with the emphasis being on adap... View full abstract»

    An architecture and a reduced set realisation of a control system for a spaceborne SAR with advanced requirements and performance has been presented and the test results of the reduced set model has shown that the concept can proceed to a future full flight build utilising ASIC methods for the transmitter module controller. The realisation consists of a fast digital signal processor (DSP) as the c... View full abstract»
