False Alarm Control for Advanced Radars
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The false alarm issue being extensive and multifaceted, based on both varying environments and radar types, modes, and capabilities, TSC proposes to design (Phase I) and construct a prototype (Phase II) of a high fidelity test-bed that will provide for the development of counter false alarm techniques across the entire spectrum of situations, and will incorporate a number of proven models and modeling capabilities that evolved at TSC in the past decade, largely under Navy programs. Both design and construction will be done under a proven Simulation Framework software tool and follow Open Architecture principles. The test-bed evolution will consist of development spirals, and will address DD(X) and CG(X) issues in the very first spiral. Spiral 1, to be addressed during Phase I, will include issues that have proven relevant to the above. The issues will be investigated, the prime causes for the observed phenomena will be identified, solutions will be proposed, and sufficient modeling and analysis will be performed, within the context of the proposed test-bed, to demonstrate feasibility. BENEFITS: Radar processing techniques, to be developed in Spiral 1 are directly applicable to DD(X) and CG(X). The long term support tool will be capable of addressing sensitivity/false alarm issues in all emerging and backfit applications for the US Navy. The knowledge and supporting tools will be applicable also to emerging USMC, and Air Force ground radar capabilities and to similar FAA systems.
