Ultrafast Detection and Tracking Using Retrodirective Random-Noise Monopulse Radar
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
We propose to build and deploy an innovative radar system combining retrodirective noise correlating (RNC) stage with random-noise monopulse tracking stage. The radar will not only detect inbound target with ultra-high speed, but also provide the angle-of-arrival (AOA) and range estimation almost simultaneously, furthermore, the technology has outstanding ECCM capability because of its wideband true random-noise waveform. The technology combines retrodirective antenna array, which provides `self-cueing' detection, and X-band coherent monopulse noise radar. The retrodirective array and first-stage correlator provide automatic beam steering and range gating, then monopulse processing generates target AOA and range estimation instantly from the second stage correlation. The entire detection/tracking time is only limited to RF propagation delay, no complicated DSP is needed.
