Mode Design for Airborne Tactical Fire-Control Radar Systems
Thursday, April 12, 2018 14:00 until 15:00 EST
This webinar examines the concepts in mode design for airborne, tactical multi-mode fire-control radar systems and the signal processing used for target acquisition, tracking and surveillance. The necessary air-to-air modes and air-to-ground modes will be examined. Waveform design concepts and digital signal processing techniques used in the presence of clutter and other interferences are presented. Radar modes treated include continuous wave (CW), high pulse repetition frequency (HPRF) and medium pulse repetition frequency (MPRF) for air-to-air targeting and surveillance. Waveforms examined include velocity search, range-while-search and rangegated HPRF. Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) waveforms and track-while-scan are also discussed. Target acquisition and single-target-track are also emphasized.
Development of air-to-ground, low PRF modes are also emphasized. Air-to-ground targeting modes include real-beam ground map, radar navigation ground-map and sea-surface search. Fixed target acquisition and fixed target track are also addressed. Ground moving target indication, acquisition and track are presented. The air-to-ground ranging, and precision velocity update waveforms are also examined. Practical implementation and signal processing associated with each mode will be emphasized. The advantages and limitations of each mode are discussed including electronic warfare waveforms.
