Abstract : The report consists of two parts. The first part is concerned with command guidance investigation. After a brief review of the existing simulation programs and of the guidance requirements, it becomes clear that faster simulation programs must be developed in view of command guidance investigation. Since most of the computation time is spent in the simulation of the analog filters, the simplification proceeds in two steps: (1) combination of the linear filters and (2) elimination of the combined filter. Part II is concerned with the design of experiments. Emphasis is on the test philosophy for testing an MTI radar in the presence of heavy ground clutter. The tests are divided into two parts: (1) calibration tests or static tests and (2) moving target or dynamic tests. (Modified author abstract)
