Abstract : In the report, bulk filtering refers to simultaneous measurement of the velocity of all objects in a radar beam, and the automatic rejection of those with a velocity less than some specified amount. The Bulk filtering, Acquisition, and Tracking System (BATS) is a signal processor used with the TRADEX radar for experiments in the bulk filtering of ballistic-missile tank fragments. BATS is a part of the Designation and Discrimination Engineering Program which studies ABM radar system functions crucial to the design of future ABM systems. A detailed description of the signal-processing equipment designed and constructed for this program is presented. (Author)
