Abstract : The In-Flight Terrain and Radar Simulator (TARS), is an airborne electronic system capable of accepting inputs of Doppler velocity, Altitude above an arbitrary reference level and Antenna Reference angle. The outputs consist of a simulated forward scanning radar, (Main Bang and Radar Return), Terrain Profile, Radar Altikude and Antenna Scan Angle. The report describes the design concept and input-output functions of TARS. Accuracies, signal generation as well as a general system discussion are included in the text. Methods for extending terrain storage and terrain computation range are included. (Author)
