Paper Abstract

In military radars a special attention is paid to fast moving targets and the ballistic objects. Detection, identification and tracking of such objects is a critical task in air surveillance radars, artillery radars and C-RAM systems. The development of algorithms that realize this aim requires testing many potential radiolocation situations. Preliminary tests can be realized using a software simulator of air picture generated by a radar. This article presents a simulator that is capable of generating the plots accordingly to the simulated radar’s operating mode and its operational parameters. The objects modeled in the simulator are among the others the ones with the ballistic trajectory. Except the objects’ plots there are generated the plots that result from false alarms. Every simulated plot contains the information about position (range, azimuth and elevation) and the value of the echo signal amplitude at the output of the detector. The principles of operation of the particular parts of simulator and selected results are presented.
