Abstract
The RCS of a ship is a key parameter for determining the range at which such ships can be detected and targeted by enemy forces. During the development of a new ship, the Navy spends a great deal of time studying the RCS for a wide variety of configurations. Navy engineers and analysts need to be able to quickly compute the RCS for a proposed ship design and compare the resulting RCS with other designs as well as the RCS budget allocated for the ship. Delcross Technologies proposes to develop a radar budget code that will allow analysts to rapidly assess the RCS of a ship for many different configurations. The tool will allow analysts to ingest CAD files for ship components and associated RCS data that can be articulated and manipulated through a sophisticated GUI. The prototype radar budget tool will be capable of performing coherent or noncoherent summations of RCS data files. The user will be able to set up the analysis through a GUI that includes 3D rendering, ocean interactions, plotting capabilities, and a hierarchical tree. A blockage check feature and the ability to specify theoretical material part treatments will be options available to the user.
