Paper Abstract

W-band monopulse stepped-frequency turntable measurements are reported. Data collection site, instrumentation, and test methodology are described in detail. The turntable measurements are used to generate point scatterer target models for all-digital and real-time HWIL simulations. Model development techniques are described. The models are validated against measurement data utilizing generic high range resolution acquisition and tracking algorithms. Validation methods and results are presented. Polarimetric signatures and modeling results for two ZIL-131 trucks measured in different configurations are compared. One truck has a canvas-covered bed, and the other, a command post vehicle, has a metal-covered plywood box structure on the back. Model implementation in assessment of seeker acquisition algorithms will determine capability to reject the trucks as low-value targets.
