Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE SIMULTANEOUS TRACKING OF SUBMUNITIONS AND DEBRIS DISPENSED BY AN ARTILLERY PROJECTILE, WITH A MULTISTATIC RADAR SYSTEM BASED ON THE HAWK VELOCIMETER. SUCH A SYSTEM IS REQUIRED FOR THE GATHERING OF AERODYNAMIC AND BALLISTIC TEST DATA AS AN AID IN THE DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF U.S. ARMY MUNITIONS. THE PROPOSAL FORMULATES A PLAN FOR THE ANALYSIS OF DESIGN OPTIONS AND THE ASSOCIATED COSTS AND ACCURACIES. IMPORTANT RADAR SYSTEM CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS ARE SPECIFIED. METHODOLOGY FOR PREDICTING CONFIGURATION ACCURACY IS DESCRIBED. TWO CANDIDATE SIANGL/DATA PROCESSING ARCHIETECTURES OF VARYING COST AND ACCURACY ARE FORMULATED. KEY SIGNAL PROCESSING ALGORITHM PARAMETERS ARE IDENTIFIED. NONLINEAR FILTERING AND DATA ASSOCIATION ALGORITHMS ARE PROPOSED FOR BOTH REAL-TIME AND POST-MISSION ANALYSIS.
