MITRE CORP BEDFORD MA
Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes the test results obtained at Barter Island, Alaska, for the ANFPS-124 Unattended Radar UAR field testing of the mission software modifications developed during the Reduction of False Reports Study. Field tests were conducted at the Bar-Main site from August 14, 1990 to August 21,1990. The field testing consisted of false report rate measurements, probability of reporting using a towed sphere, and target probability of reporting during high turn rate high g maneuvers. With the mission software patches installed, there was an improvement in the false target report rate and in the probability of target reporting during high g maneuvers. The towed sphere tests showed that the system sensitivity, with the modified mission software installed, meets the North Warning System specification requirements.
