Paper Abstract

This paper describes the implementation of a real-time radar data processor for an airborne research radar system: the multimode, polarimetric, interferometric Enhanced Surveillance Radar (ESR) developed by the UK Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA). The computer performance available in today's shared memory multiprocessor workstation has enabled us to design and implement a radar data processor which not only achieves real-time performance but provides an uniquely flexible environment for undertaking research and development into radar processing techniques.
