Abstract
A REQUIREMENT EXISTS FOR A LOW COST TARGET SIMULATOR THAT CAN GENERATE A MM-WAVE RADAR RETURN IN ORDER TO REPLICATE THE RETURNS OF VARIOUS GROUND VEHICLES. SUCH A DEVICE IS NEEDED IN ORDER TO EFFECTIVELY TEST "SMART MUNITION" WEAPON SYSTEMS EMPLOYING MM-WAVE TARGET SEEKERS. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN APPROACH WHICH APPLIED DIGITAL RF MEMORIES (DRFMS) TECHNIQUES TO THE PROBLEM; A 2 PHASE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED. IN THE FIRST PHASE THE RANGE OF PARAMETERS WHICH CHARACTERIZE THE TYPE OF RETURNS OF INTEREST WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND THE VIABILITY OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH TO SATISFY THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED IN THE LABORATORY. PHASE 1 WILL CULMINATE WITH THE SPECIFICATION AND GENERAL DESIGN OF A BRASSBOARD MM-WAVE TARGET SIMULTOR SYSTEM THAT COULD BE CONSTRUCTED AND TESTED IN A FOLLOW ON PHASE 2 EFFORT. THE PERSONNEL WHO WILL BE ENGAGED IN THE WORK ARE LEADERS IN DRFM TECHNOLOGY.
