Abstract:

AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL FACILITIES AT USN AND USMC AIR STATIONS ARE TYPICALLY FIXED INSTALLATIONS OR LARGE SCALE TACTICAL COMPLEXES. A NEED EXISTS FOR A SMALL, HIGHLY MOBILE RADAR AIR SURVEILLANCE CAPABILITY WHICH CAN BE RAPIDLY DEPLOYED AS A GAP FILLER OR TO PROVIDE RADAR APPROACH CONTROL SERVICES AT A BARE BASE. THE SYSTEM MUST PROVIDE BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY RADAR CAPABILITIES WITH TARGET DETECTION AND TRACKING, HIGH RESOLUTIONN COMPACT FULL CAPABILITY DISPLAYS, AIR-TO-GROUND AND LAND MOBILE RADIOS, METEOROLOGICAL INSTRUMENTATION AND ANCILLARY AND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT. THE SYSTEM MUST BE SHELTERIZED AND FULLY SELF CONTAINED, CAPABLE OF AUTONOMOUS OPERATION. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES ONE APPROACH TOWARD PROVIDING THIS CAPABILITY USING THE USAF SURVELLANCE RESTORAL VEHICLE (SRV) AS THE BASELINE SYSTEM. SRV IS AN SSR ONLY AIRSPACE SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM; THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A PLAN FOR EXPANDING THE SRV CAPABILITIES THROUGH THE ADDITION OF A SHORT RANGE (15-20 MILE) PRIMARY RADAR AND AN ASSOCIATED TARGET TRACKER, AND AN EXPANDED PROCESSING AND DISPLAY CAPABILITY, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO INTERFACE AND DISPLAY PRECISION APPROACH RADAR DATA. PHASE I WILL DEVELOP A BASIC SYSTEM CONCEPT, WITH A DETAILED SYSTEM DESIGN CONFIGURATION WHICH COULD LEAD TO A FULL SCALE DEVELOPMENT SPECIFICATION UNDER A PHASE II PROGRAM.
