Abstract:

This report has two objectives 1 to describe in detail a unique multifrequency 8-12 GHz 32-element array data base collected over Lake Huron, and 2 to investigate the experimental performance of multifrequency phase monopulse using a model for specular multipath called refined monopulse or RMONO because of its use of a refined propagation model. Tracking performance is compared with that obtained with phase monopulse averaged over the frequency agile bandwidth and with that obtained with the Refined Maximum Likelihood RML algorithm. The results show that for wide agile bandwidth 4 GHz centered on 10 GHz and adequate number of frequencies 5, RMONO performs almost as well as RML and both Perform much better than phase monopulse. However, phase monopulse compares more favorably with a smaller bandwidth 2 GHz and fewer frequencies 3. Radar, Low angle tracking, Multipath
