Abstract : An operator-microprocessor interactive Operating System has been developed for the Time Domain Radar Laboratory (TDRL). The Operating System performs signal acquisition and averaging, real time and frequency domain computations and provides outputs in easily evaluated graphic displays. Target classification is made by analysis of either impulse, step or ramp responses. A noise-reduction signal optimization technique is implemented. Numerous measurements of known and unknown targets are made using various antennas and results are compared to theory. Targets are classified. Antenna parameters are established. Algorithms using the specialized features of the host Graphic System are tailored to the requirements of the TDRL for a detailed graphic presentation of processed data. (Author)
