Research Institution
Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize this commonality to define and develop an iRAP that would allow numerous radar and other sensors to be interfaced with modern aircraft mission systems. This proposed research effort will develop the design for a flexible network-based radar signal processor that would: 1) provide a specific means of interfacing the WP-3D radars to the AAMPS MDS, 2) provide a generic means of interfacing instruments to the MDS and 3) enhance the capabilities of the AAMPS MDS as a package.
