Abstract:

A VARIETY OF SCORING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN IN EXISTENCE SINCE THE LATE 1950'S AND USED PRIMARILY BY THE MILITARY TO EVALUATE WEAPONS SYSTEMS.THE MORE SUCCESSFUL SCORING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN BASED UPON EITHER ACOUSTIC OR RF RADAR TECHNOLOGIES. RADAR SCORING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN USED MORE SUCCESSFULLY PRIMARILY DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEIR PERFORMANCE IS NOT AFFECTED BY ALTITUDE OR AIRSPEED. AS THE MAJOR SUPPLIER OF RADAR SCORING SYSTEMS, CARTWRIGHT ENGINEERING, INC. (CEI) HAS PROVIDED A WIDE VARIETY OF INSTRUMENTATION FOR DRONES AND TOW TARGETS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE AIR FORCE, ARMY AND NAVY AS WELL AS A NUMBER OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES. THE SPECIFIC PROBLEM TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE PHASE I EFFORT DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL WILL BE TO ADAPT THE RADAR TECHNOLOGY PERFECTED BY CEI FOR AIRBORNE SCORING APPLICATIONS FOR USE WITH A REMOTE CONTROL TARGET VEHICLE. SUCH A TARGET WILL PRESENT A MUCH MORE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT TO THE SCORING SYSTEM THAN IN AN AIRBORNE APPLICATION BECAUSE OF TARGET NOISE AND GROUND INTERFERENCE. IN ADDITION, THIS TYPE OF TARGET VEHICLE WILL PRESENT A MORE DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN PROVIDING FOR THE RELIABLE TELEMETRY TRANSMISSION OF SCORING DATA.
