Abstract
RDRTec Inc. proposes to develop and prove the feasibility of an adaptive multi-channel phased array manifold that reconfigures by radar mode for optimum performance. The emphasis will be on candidate multi-mode X or C-band radars with phased arrays that support modes with both high and low bandwidth requirements. High bandwidth modes include Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR), and High Range Resolution (HRR). Relatively low bandwidth modes include Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI), Maritime Moving Target Indicator (MMTI), Air-to-Air (AA) and Sense and Avoid (SAA) modes. The target initial transition platform is the Fire Scout but the lessons learned may impact other future Navy ISR radars.
