Abstract
The need to detect and track small aerial targets is identified. An approach to use a unique radar front-end sensor is described, which provides the initial detection capability. The data from the sensor is used to cue a high-speed, highly accurate pointing and tracking system with a Coude path capability. In Phase I, the system design will be completed. In Phase II, build-out and system testing will be undertaken. A strong industry and academic team is in place to execute this project.
