Abstract:

Measurements have been made on the NRL second-generation acceleration-velocity-range signal processor. Acceleration and velocity resolutions and coverage, signal dynamic range, target-handling capabilities, large and small signal performance and spurious levels have been considered, and then performance is illustrated with three-coordinate and two-coordinate data formats. The three coordinate real-time data formats aid the observer to grasp more quickly the significance of the combinations of acceleration, velocity, range, amplitude, and time data being presented. They also quickly reveal the serious consequences of mismatched signal processing. The effectiveness and potential of the acceleration-velocity-range signal processor may more easily be judged with the aid of the three-coordinate data formats.
