Paper Abstract

The Martin Marietta Orlando Aerospace capital facility used to conduct research and development in infrared radar technology is described. The methodology for choosing the multifunction sensor parameters in light of addressing both applications and technology are discussed. Special consideration is given to the important issue of choosing the radar modulation format for a particular mission application. Several unique signal processing approaches to obtaining range, pulse width and velocity imagery are also presented and a prediction of the LIRS performance is given. Finally, several measured parameters of the system under construction are presented.
