Abstract:

A system for integrating weapon control radars which operate at the same or different frequency bands, and for permitting every weapon control radar, for example on a ship, to lock through every weapon control antenna, thereby enabling all radars to be used against all targets, includes interconnecting broad-band antennas that can be time - andor frequency-shared by all the radars. Each antenna has a coaxial monopulse feed at the various bands of operation. Each antenna also includes a switch for time-sharing the radars either simultaneously or sequentially into the antenna. A second switch for each antenna sends the radar outputs associated with each antenna to a control system for that antenna and its associated weapon launcher.
