Abstract
THE DATA COLLECTION FOR THE MILLIMETER WAVELENGTH INSTRUMENTATION RADAR, BASED ON THE KWAJALEIN ATOLL, COULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCED IF THE RADAR IS MODIFIED TO PROVIDE A LIMITED FIELD OF VIEW (LFOV) CAPABILITY. THIS WOULD ALLOW THE RADAR TO HAVE THE SAME CAPABILITY AS A FULL PHASED ARRAY OVER A LIMITED ANGLE COVERAGE WHICH WOULD MEAN MORE THAN ONE TARGET COULD BE TRACKED AT A TIME. THE APPROACH WOULD BE TO REPLACE THE EXISTING SOLID SUB-REFLECTOR WITH A SMALL PHASED ARRAY. THIS COULD BE DONE WITHOUT ESSENTIALLY CHANGING THE PRESENT RADAR CHARACTERISTICS.
