Abstract:

The radar is being developed to replace the outmoded and expensive to maintain ANFPS-93 and ANFPS-90 radars now used in Alaska. The ANFPS-93 is a two-dimensional surveillance radar and the ANFPS-90 is a two-dimensional height finder radar both of these older radars have been in operation since the early 1950s. The specification requirements for SEEK IGL00 were set by a combination of the following 1 performance characteristics of the ANFPS-90 and ANFPS-93 radars 2 performance characteristics of the Semi-Automatic Ground Environment SAGE System and the Joint Surveillance System JSS 3 sensor requirements using the new generation fighter aircraft and 4 stringent reliability, maintainability and availability requirements to reduce on-site maintenance and operations personnel. The SEEK IGLOO radar will provide digital output messages as opposed to the conventional blip signals used with many radar displays containing range, azimuth and height information for radar and beacon targets.
