Abstract : The analysis was performed under WSMR Task A-16, Multiple Tracking System, primarily to document basic performance relationships, and approaches to a phased array instrumentation tracking radar. Included are general approaches to phased arrays, sensitivity analysis, power handling computations, coverage with respect to the WSMR boundaries, cost trend analysis, basic radar errors, tracking accuracy as function of target dynamics and number of targets, presentation of actual tracking data from an existing phased array radar, delineation of system processor words, phased array radar reliability estimates, a set of preliminary specifications, establishment of testing priorities, and a set of test plans.
