Abstract

Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and Technology Service Corporation (TSC) propose to develop a novel, cost-effective solution to building radar systems. This system uses multiple cheaper, lower-PRF transmitters to create the equivalent of a more expensive higher-PRF system. In addition to achieving the cost advantages of not requiring the more expensive Gridded Traveling Wave Tubes (GTWTs) to achieve higher-PRFs, the proposed transmitter system will also reap the porcessing ambiguity--related benefits of both lower-PRF and higher-PRF systems simultaneously.
