Abstract:

The report reviews the performance of operational ASRs, discusses each type of clutter with which the target must compete, examines presently employed methods of overcoming clutter and several state-of-the art techniques which have not found their way into the ASRs for one reason or another. It concludes by describing two radars, one at S-band and one at UHF, which are believed to come closest to fulfilling ASR requirements in advanced ARTS facilities. Author Modified Abstract
