Abstract:

The newly installed TRADEX VHF Radar Subsystem will enable Project PRESS to gather, at a frequency of 149 MHz, signal returns from exo-atmospheric and re-entering bodies and their wakes. The VHF Radar is built into the TRADEX system and utilizes many of the existing facilities such as the antenna and the data processing and recording subsystems. The radar, being a nontracker, will rely on the UHF Radar for positioning in range and angle.
