Abstract : A description of a preliminary version of the Radar and Optical Systems COde for the evaluation of nuclear Effects on sensors (zero-order ROSCOE) is presented. The code consists of a working radar system simulation with crude phenomenology. Descriptions of the following systems modules are presented: attack generation, object observables, track filter, radar logic (detection, track initiation, track, and discrimination), and radar signal processing. Propagation models for such effects as noise, attenuation, clutter, refraction, and multipath are also described. (Modified author abstract)
