Abstract
THE REQUIREMENT OF THIS ADVANCED DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IS TO PERFORM INVESTIGATIONS LEADING TO THE DEFINITION OF AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE RELIABLE SIMULATION OF REALISTIC END GAME SCENARIOS BY ELECTRONICALLY AUGMENTING THE RADAR RETURN SIGNATURE OF EXPENDABLE TARGETS. A COMPLEX RADAR TARGET SIGNATURE GENERATOR (CRTSG) WOULD BE INSTALLED ON BOARD THE EXPENDABLE TARGET VEHICLE. THE CRTSG WOULD BE CAPABLE OF PROVIDING A REAL TIME RESPONSE TO A HOMING RADAR, WHICH WOULD MAKE THE EXPENDABLE TARGET PRODUCE A RADAR SIGNATURE COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE THREAT AIRCRAFT WHICH THE TARGET IS EMULATING. AT A MINIMUM, EFFECTS OF FREQUENCY AND ASPECT ANGLE INDUCED SCINTILLATIAN, JETENGINE MODULATION (JEM) AND MULTI-BOUNCE GLINT SHOULD BE REPLICATED, WHILE CORRECTLY HANDLING THE MODULATION OF IMPINGENT POLARIZATION.THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS WILL DISCUSS SOME OF THE ESSENTIALS FOR A COMPLEX RADAR TARGET SIGNATURE GENERATOR. SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF USING A VERSATILE DESIGN WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSED. MALIBU RESEARCH HAS HAD MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN THE RADAR TARGET AND CLUTTER GENERATAR FIELD. OUR REAL TIME TARGET GENERATORS HAVE INTERFACED SPATIALLY (RF). WITH SOME RADARS, AND IN THE IF SECTIONS OF OTHER RADARS, PROVIDING THE RADAR WITH A COMPLETE USER CONTROLLED RADAR ENVIRONMENT. OUR VERSATILE DESIGN PRODUCES HIGH FIDELITY REPLICATION OF COMPLEX SCENARIOS WELL, WHILE ACCOMMODATING A VARIETY OF RADAR DESIGNS.
