AN/FPS-85 Synchronous Capability,
ROME AIR DEVELOPMENT CENTER GRIFFISS AFB N Y
Pagination or Media Count:
A study was conducted to determine the feasibility of extending the ANFPS-85 radar performance to synchronous ranges. Several modifications involving mixed integration, coherent integration, and transmit power increases were examined considering the target effects of six typical objects and considering the Faraday rotation propagation effects. It was concluded that the AnFPS-85 radar can achieve synchronous capability at a relatively modest cost and with varying levels of radar time penalty depending upon the modification and target of interest.
