Abstract
RDRTec Inc. proposes to enhance imaging modes to improve performance of Maritime and Overland Classification Aids (MOCA). In addition, this effort will further mature innovative processor and processing architectures that enable the Fire Scout Radar Autonomous Collisions Avoidance System (RACAS) to be FAA certified for operation in the Nation Air Space (NAS) as well as add simultaneous tactical modes. The Maritime and Overland Classification Aids (MOCA) project enables an accelerated capability development for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions and advanced radar enhancements for surface operations. Capability enhancements include improved radar imaging, tracking, and classification of surface contacts as well as more efficient sensor utilization and improved operator interfaces. RACAS is currently under development by ONR and NAVAIR as a Sense and Avoid (SAA) initiative for transition into the MQ-8. Analysis has shown that RACAS antenna hardware could be upgraded so as to simultaneously support both SAA and tactical modes; however, these must be implemented so as not to cause undue additional DO-178 and DO-254 certification cost as required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for SAA.
