REQUENCY, Computer programsCost comparisonThe study provides a design analysis and cost optimization on a phase array radar capable of detecting and tracking targets located at synchronous altitudes and beyond. The report describes parametric radar performance and cost models for several generic radar systems which were sized and optimized to satisfy the above requirements. The results of a parametric cost comparison among the various candidates is given and design detail and preliminary absolute cost data are presented for two system candidates selected for further study. These candidates are 1 a phase-phase steered VHF 140 MHz radar configuration which uses a tetrode EIMAC 4CPX250K power amplifier module per element in the transmit array and 2 a UHF 435 MHz time scanned array radar TSAR configuration.
