Abstract
A RANGE-TRILATERATION SCHEME USING RADARS IS PROPOSED FOR DETECTING THE SPLASH OF REENTRY VEHICLES (RVS) IMPACTING AT KWAJALEIN ATOLL (KA). RANGE TRILATERATION CAN PROVIDE THE DESIRED POSITION MEASUREMENT ACCURACY, AREA COVERAGE, ALL-WEATHER PERFORMANCE, AND RELIABILITY REQUIRED OF THE RV IMPACT SCORING FUNCTION. IT ALSO PROVIDES OCEAN SURFACE SURVEILLANCE FOR WATER CRAFT. FOUR CONCEPTS ARE TO BE INVESTIGATED DURING THE PHASE I PROGRAM, AS REGARDS THEIR FEASABILITY AND SUITABILITY FOR KA. AT THE END OF PHASE I A RECOMMENDATION WILL BE MADE AS TO THE MOST SUITABLE CONCEPTS. THE PHASE II EFFORT WILL PERFORM DETAILED COST AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS OF THE REMAINING CONCEPTS, DOWNSELECT TO A SINGLE ONE, AND DEVELOP A DESIGN SPECIFICATION FOR THE RECOMMENDED CONCEPT.
