Abstract : The program covers the study, design, construction, test, analysis and inspection of a complete and operative, highly reliable, relatively failure-free version of the pulsed doppler surveillance AN/PPS-6 radar set. The radar set is intended to be a lightweight, miniaturized, X-Band, pulsed doppler combat surveillance radar. The basic purpose of this program is to develop a highly reliable radar set considering the overall cost of ownership when development, production and maintenance costs are taken into account while keeping the same general performance, form-factor and weight as the AN/PPS-6 radar.
