Paper Abstract

The STAG program was hiitiated at Eglin Air Force Base in 1990 under the sponsorship of the Armament Directorate of Wright Laboratory. The purpose of the STAG program is to investigate and support passive millimeter wave activities associated with the development of mart tactical gutonomous guidance systems. Development of the associated sensor technology focuses attention on a data collection/phenomenology effort to provide a firm foundation for sensor design and algorithm development. The center piece of the data collection/phenomenology effort is the mobile test bed referred to as MAPS, an acronym taken from Millimeter Wave Analysis of Passive Signatures. As shown in Figure 1, the MAPS will provide the data base of passive millimeter wave information concerning terrain, atmospheric and target signatures needed to support the critical development technologies associated with the STAG program. MAPS' low-bed trailer includes an equipment enclosure which is 8 ft. wide and 25 ft. long. Photographs ofMAPS are shown in Figures 2a through 2d.
