Abstract"We propose the design of a virtual phased array radar for ballistic missile defense applications. Virtual Phased array radar (VPAR) is a radical radar, a multi-mission radar (MMR) with roots in the missile defense community that, can provide betterperformance with much lighter weight and cube than current radars, at a much lower cost. We believe VPAR can provide a critical element of the future tactical missile (and air) defense systems, providing the surveillance and fire control sensor solutionfor tactical missile defense mission against ballistic missiles and cruise missiles, including successors to CORPS SAM, JLENS, STINGER/Avenger, and the Army's current surveillance radar, the MPQ-64 Sentinel. The radar will, serve the collateral, buttechnically simpler areas of air defense surveillance and fire direction. Will be an invaluable sensor for various missile defense applications. Other agencies such as FAA will also benefit from the proposed technology"
