Abstract:

This report summarizes activities during the sixth quarter of a program sponsored by the U.S. Army Electronics Command ECOM, directed toward the design of an Environment and Radar Operation Simulator EROS. The analysis of clutter-simulation digital filters has been directed toward determining the effect of filter parameters on the filters output statistics. The feedback multipliers control the shape of the spectrum, and formulas are given relating the multiplier values to spectral characteristics. Parameters of the pseudo-random number generator and other filter parameters control clutter amplitude distribution. An algorithm is provided for computing these parameters from given amplitude-distribution constraints. Digital hardware design has included the clutter filters, clutter azimuth weighting, the target processor, and several frequently used modules. Real-time software design has been directed toward the executive control program, which coordinates the computers target, clutter, and display activities. Author
