Abstract:

The testing of radar systems is enhanced with the use of clutter generator that simulates realistic terrain echo returns which are provided in real-time. A fast array processor is used in combination with a Fourier Transform processor to produce a complex digital output having time, frequency and magnitude information corresponding to the composite echos from thousands of points. A digital-to-analog converter filters the output and a single-sideband mixer converts the digital output to a radio frequency signal. Patents.
