Paper Abstract

The Advanced Technology Millimeter Wave Seeker Testbed (ATMMWST) may be characterized by these descriptors: 1) High range resolution (HRR) via synthetic, coherent processing 2) Complete polarization scattering matrix in a circular basis 3) Dual-plane sum-and-difference monopulse with complex angle processing. This seeker technology is coupled with statistical pattern recognition algorithms for target/clutter discrimination and tracking algorithms for guidance signal generation. The algorithms are embedded in the signal processing software/hardware system. The ATMMWST system consists of a seeker, a signal processor, an instrumentation system and data recording system, and an independent line-of-sight reference system (ILOSRS). The system is used in both tower and captive flight programs to collect target signatures and to demonstrate various aspects of the mission scenario.
