Abstract:

This program addresses the Navy need for extended firm track range for low altitude cruise missiles through the integration of multiple sensors. Track-Before-Declare TBD techniques that utilize signal features are proposed for the synergistic integration of an Electronically Scanned Array ESA radar with other sensors for the detection of weak targets. The computer simulation models of the sensors will include the effects of many issues such as finite sensor resolution, limitations on the sensor resources, atmospheric refraction, sensor pointing errors, sea-surface induced multipath, nonhomogeneous clutter, sea clutter, etc. that are omitted in most of the legacy simulations. The two primary accomplishments for the first year of this program were the development of a phased array radar model with search and track management functions for multiple targets as well as the development of a sea-clutter model with moving target indicator MTI waveform designs.
