Abstract:

The primary objective of this study is to define the dogfight environment in terms of a tracking system. The secondary objective is to apply this dogfight definition to present AI radars. This study is divided into two efforts, a determination of the primary weapon control requirements and a parameter interaction study. The purpose of the primary weapon control requirements study is to define the dogfight environment and to investigate the relationship of aircraft, tactics, weapons, and the available data base. The purpose of the parameter interaction study is to define the dogfight environment more precisely in terms of tracking loop requirements, clutter problems, and glint.
