Abstract
DCS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SIMULATION AND HARDWARE ARCHITECTURE OF A RADAR RECEIVER TO DETECT MOVING TARGETS THAT OFFERS SIGNIGICANT IMPROVEMENTS OVER EXISTING RECEIVERS. THE UNIQUE RECEIVER/SIMULATION CAN BE UTILIZED IN AIR, SURFACE, AND SPACE ENVIRONMENTS. THE RANGE AND ALL WEATHER CAPABILITIES OF RADAR ENSURES ITS UTILIZATION IN BOTH SINGLE/MULTIPLE MISSION SYSTEMS. MODERN RADARS ARE HIGH RESOLUTION, MULTIFUNCTION, SIMULTANEOUS MODE SYSTEMS. ELECTRONIC PHASED ARRAY ANTENNAS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO CIRCUMVENT THE MECHANICAL NIGHTMARES REQUIRED TO SCAN THE ENVIRONMENT AND SUPPORT DESIRED FEATURES. THE INCREASED FUNCTIONALITY AND FLEXIBILITY OF ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS IS NOT WITHOUT TRADEOFFS. IN ORDER TO IMPLEMENT TIMING REQUIREMENTS, THROUGHPUT REQUIREMENTS, BEAM STEERING, DOPPLER FILTERING, SIGNAL CONDITIONING AND PROCESSING, MULTIPLE TARGET TRACKING, TARGET IMAGING, ETC. INTEGRAL PARTS OF MODERN RADAR SYSTEMS MUST INCLUDE SOPHISTICATED RADAR RECEIVERS. THIS RESEARCH PRESENT A PLAN TO DEVELOP A SIMULATION TO ANALYZE TRADEOFFS AND DEVELOP A RECEIVER DESIGN PLAN BASED ON THE ANALYSES. THE SIMULATION ALSO PERMITS THE EVALUATION OF DOPPLER PROCESSOR APPLIED TO THE SLOW MOVING GROUND TARGETS IN CLUTTER PROBLEM.
