Abstract:

The USAF Test Pilot School conducted flight tests to characterize the Weibel-manufactured Spaceport Arrival and Departure System SPADS radar functionality and performance for potential use as a single-station time-space-position information TSPI source. TSPI truth source data was measured with Advanced Range Data System ARDS pods for aircraft tracking, cinetheodolites for munition trajectory tracking and video bomb scoring VBS for bomb impact predictions.
