The use of high-resolution pulse Doppler radar and processing techniques is said to allow for the detection of physically small missiles with a "very low" false alarm rate.
Figure 3 shows a general time multiplexing format for sharing simultaneous radar, ESM and ECM operations in a multifunction system along with some key loss issues when time sharing pulse Doppler radar functions.
The second type is the pulse Doppler radar (PDR), which because of its high PRF has no velocity ambiguities and can provide data rates similar to CW radars.
Pulse Doppler radar finds general application in this area by permitting detection of a moving target in stationary or slowly moving backgrounds:
Following the simulator tests, the module was operated against actual pulse Doppler radars of US fabrication in ground-based operations.
Besides the CEESIM, which emulates 32 pulse radars, the SIL's threat-generation assets include the EW Simulator, built in-house to simulate 4 CW or pulse Doppler radars, and a laser threat generator, which produces Band 1 and 3 lasers, said Aletta.
With tens of thousands of pulse Doppler radars in the world, we must address not only the enemy's emission, but friendly emission from adjacent battle areas."
The requirement is compounded in the case of CW and pulse Doppler radars. These radars, in general, employ smaller peak powers than lowduty-cycle pulse radars with equivalent detection range performance.
