Abstract:

The goal of the study was to identify angel clutter reduction techniques which were cost-effective for the existing ASR-4, 5, and 6 radars. The report identifies a combination of techniques which can be implemented without major radar re-design and which improves the ASR surveillance capability. The Appendices provide a description of the field test instrumentation and supporting data and analyses.
