Abstract : The MICOM Experimental Array Radar (EAR) is a C-Band, phase monopulse, phased array radar designed to perform the functions of sector search and target track for air defense applications. The radar is computer controlled and contains several hard-wired digital processing functions. Its various modes of operation require considerable data transfer and function control. In addition, precise timing relation relationships are required between transmitted pulses and the several processing functions that are performed. The report details all the data transfer, function control, and timing requirements for the EAR system, and describes the design and implementation of a synchronizer to provide all the timing functions for operation of the system.
