Abstract : The report discusses the SEL86 radar operating system, a collection of programs that controls the radar, collects data and communicates with the operator. There are three major levels to this system. The inner most level is the NUCLEUS whose main purpose is to provide process synchronizing and basic resource allocation. The next level is the SUPERVISOR which provides an interface to the NUCLEUS and input/output and other services to the control programs. The outer level is made up of the RADAR CONTROL PROGRAMS which performs the actual radar control functions. The report contains two articles: SEL 86 Radar Operating System, and Frequency Agility to Reduce Multipath Pointing Errors.
