The FIRST RF team has demonstrated the feasibility of a system that will provide RPG launch warning and bearing determination during the Phase I SBIR. The system will be mounted on top of a vehicle or installed on fixed sights. The intent is to keep the system simple and affordable to allow integration on a wide range of platforms and users. An important feature of the system is that it is rugged and reliable. The key element of the proposed system is a Ku-Band radar with an affordable antenna system that detects an incoming RPG. The dynamics of the system allow detection of rounds as close as 50 meters to ranges greater than 1500 meters. During the Phase I effort the following tasks were accomplished: System Parameters Defined and Performance Against RPG Confirmed, Antenna Aperture Designed with Patterns to Validate both Elevation and Azimuth Coverage, Key Component Demonstration Hardware was Designed and Built.
