Radar coverage of a region for air defense or air traffic control often necessitates the use of multiple radars in order to compensate for terrain caused coverage problems and/or guarantee a uniformly good probability of detection over the region. Correlation and utilization of data from these sites by totally automatic means is an essentially unsolved problem. Moreover, computer simulation of this problem is ineffective unless a very detailed real time simulation is performed. The multi-radar simulator has been built to provide the means wherein a real time simu-lation of a system of netted radars, their radar processors, and collocated trackers can be performed. This simulator is an MIMD machine utilizing the building block processor as the processing element. This implementation has proven easy to program and has brought the necessary computational speed to the problem of effectively emulating a set of radars and their processors observing the same air picture from different vantage points.
