Abstract:

This report documents the work done to aid in the generation and analysis of clutter images derived from Run 11 and Run 18 of TMAST02. This work included providing small enhancements to the existing Interactive Data Language IDL-based Software Tools for Analysis and Research STAR software, based on recommendations generated during previous call-ups. An automatic main blast detector was developed and the resulting signal processing module was shared with the Integrated Multistatic Passive Active Concept Testbed IMPACT. A dedicated clutter image analysis application was generated in STAR and an Energy Time Indicator ETI analysis application was integrated with it to allow simultaneous image and ETI analysis. Data from TMAST02 Run 18 was processed and initial analysis was performed to generate an initial utility assessment and ideas for further work.
