Abstract
Technology Service Corporation (TSC) proposes to analyze and develop an innovative multi-static radar concept based on the principles of generalized Space Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) to coherently detect airborne and ground moving targets in the presence of the severe clutter and interference backgrounds that are encountered by high-altitude standoff ISR platforms. The multi-static system concept to be studied employs the AWACS as a single high-altitude transmitter, with multiple single-element passive receivers moving in arbitrary, but known, trajectories. This multi-static system concept operates without the restrictive assumptions traditionally placed on traditional STAP receive arrays, and is amenable to future net-centric system architectures. Feasibility studies will be performed using analysis and computer simulation methods to demonstrate whether TSC's Generalized STAP MTI algorithms are suitable for enhanced E-3 Sentry operations in future net-centric environments, supporting the U.S. Air Force Electronic Systems Center (ESC) vision of the capabilities needed to meet existing and future Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) missions.
