Abstract:

The long-term goal of this program is to develop radar-based remote environmental needed for safe and effective naval operations in the littoral region. This includes accurate spectral measurements of the environment, including land, sea and environmental clutter, and timely volumetric measurements of radar propagation conditions. With the application of advanced signal processing techniques, a tactical Navy radar such as the ANSPY-1 radar can provide accurate, real time weather information to benefit a variety of units in the battle group. SPY-1 provides the sensitivity and flexibility to integrate a secondary capability of weather surveillance, with minimal impact on the primary role of tactical surveillance. This can be accomplished through an auxiliary environmental signal processor that operates in parallel with the tactical system. Such a processor could provide real-time performance improvements to the SPY-1 radar as well as valuable environmental information to be disseminated for the support of fleet operations.
