Abstract
The FIRST RF team proposes a system that will provide RPG launch warning and bearing determination. The proposed system will be mounted on top of a vehicle or installed on fixed sights. The intent is to keep the system simple and affordable to allow integration on a wide range of platforms and users. Even a limited number of installations will provide a limited yet effective shield by detection of RPG threats. An important feature of the system is that it is rugged and reliable. The key element of the proposed system is a Ku-Band radar with an affordable antenna system that detects an incoming RPG. The dynamics of the system allow detection of rounds as close as 150 meters to ranges greater than 1000 meters. An optional optical system is proposed to augment the radar. The overall objective of the proposed Phase I effort is to demonstrate feasibility of the omni-sensor system for the anti-RPG application. Laboratory tests will be conducted to validate key components such as the RF aperture. A full system model will be generated to demonstrate effectiveness of the proposed concept.
