Abstract:

A medium-range target model was developed with N point scatterers, where each scatterer can have an RCS that is aspect dependent. The medium-range constraint assumes that all scatterers on the target are in the linear region of the monopulse receive beam, and all scatterers are illuminated with a constant gain by the transmit beam. The purpose of this constraint is to remove the sensor pointing angles from the real-time computation. In other words, the signal that is generated on the RFSS array is independent of the sensor pointing angles. At shorter ranges where the transmit beam is no longer uniform across the target, or where the monopulse difference beam is not linear, the pointing angles of the sensor beam must be known so that the variable weighting can be implemented in the real-time simulation moreover, the signals that would be received on each monopulse channel must be separately simulated and radiated into specific points on the receive beam so that each channel receives the proper signal and rejects the others.
