This proposal describes a plan to develop radar systems which will adapt the radar parameters in order to optimize the performance under different environmental conditions. Environmental data will be collected from various sensors including those availablefrom the radar echoes. These data will first be used to create as complete a picture of the environment as possible. Next, the radar parameters will be selected based on the optimum conditions under these environments. An expert system will be developedto synthesize the environmental conditions and to predict the radar parameters. Design, development and demonstration of the expert system is the major task during Phase I. Extensive simulations will be performed in order to develop the expert system and for demonstration of the improvements of the radar performance using the expert system. Detailed development and demonstration using real data available from radars will be performed during Phase II.Adaptive radars will improve the performance of a variety of military and non-military radars and will have widespread applications as add-ons to existing radar systems.
