Abstract:

The document summarizes the results of a study directed to an analysis of the applicability of a unique technique for boresighting of range instrumentation radar systems measurement of microwave refractive index geodetic measurements. An analysis of the basic concept indicates that experimental verification is feasible, utilizing an existing range instrumentation radar system FPQ-6 as a receiving terminal for a bistatic moon-bounce experimental test system. The performance requirements for the transmitting terminal have been analyzed in detail and found to be well within current state-of-the-art capability. A preliminary engineering investigation of methods for implementing the experiment at minimum cost has led to the conclusion that the majority of equipments required either are, or can be, made available from government inventory in a form suitable for integration into the required system mode of operation.
