Abstract
We are proposing to explore the capabilities of a wideband imaging radar that has been developed for other applications to perform the detection function of an autonomous see and avoid system, by using its operating parameters and associated signal processing algorithms in a detailed system simulation of UAV operations in the NAS. This will provide us a baseline of realistic performance for performing UAV implementation concept trades and give us a means by which concepts can be compared.
