Abstract:

An improved radar quantizer group RQG was installed in the production common digitizer PCD located at the Elwood, New Jersey, National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center long range radar site. The modified RQG improves search target detection in radar clutter environments. A series of subsystem and system tests was conducted to compile data comparing digitizer performance using the improved RQGPCD with performance from an unmodified PCD. Test results indicate increased search target detection and reduced automatic clutter eliminator ACE total blank in weather clutter areas. It was concluded that the modified PCD increased search track life in radar clutter environments. Author
