Abstract:

The Threat Radar Simulator TRS, utilized in DREOs ECM facility, is equipped with a Moving Target Indicator MTI processor used to detect the skin echo of moving targets. The MTI unit makes use of a doppler shift, associated with the moving target, to discriminate between the target and unwanted clutter. To facilitate the MTIs requirement for doppler shifts in the return pulses, a Doppler Target Signal Generator DTSG has been developed at DREO. The DTSG is an X-band programmable frequency synthesizer with three independent outputs. Two of the outputs are used in the generation of target returns and the third output provides a doppler shift to the clutter return signal.
