Abstract:

The Defence Research Establishment Ottawa has designed and constructed an experimental air-to-air radar system as the first step in demonstrating an air-to-air surveillance capability for the Canadian Forces CP-140 Maritime Patrol Aircraft. initial flight trials of the experimental radar system were conducted in October 1999. The resulting data set includes measurements of ground clutter, water clutter, urban clutter, and returns from targets of opportunity. These data will be used to support the development of new signal processing and target detection algorithms that will form the basis of the CP-140 air-to-air surveillance capability. The data will also be used to support the validation of radar simulation models with site-specific clutter.
