Abstract:

The document is a system specification for the Augmented Radar Beacon Tracking Level RBTL system. The Augmented RBTL expands the Beacon Tracking Level BTL ARTS III system by providing the capability of automatically tracking and displaying information on both non-beacon and beacon-equipped aircraft. In addition, this system provides improved tracking techniques together with new techniques for improving the controller-computer interface. The Augmented RBTL system expands the ARTS III system, but retains the ARTS III features. Primary radar processing is accomplished through the addition of an Radar Data Acquisition Subsystem RDAS together with radar processing software. The RDAS accepts basic timing and radar video information from a search radar. It provides quantized video hits to the ARTS computer IOP in the form of 30 bit words. The computer uses these hits to perform radar target detection land position estimation.
