Abstract : This report presents results of studies, investigations, and technique developments which will be useful in future HF long range radar applications. This report is in five volumes. Volume 1 - covers the development of a multifilar helical contrawound antenna which may be suitable as the wideband radiating element for large HF array antennas. Volume 2 - evaluates the performance of an adaptive array operating in multipath environment. Comparisons between the cancellation performance of the array operating against coherent and incoherent interference is made. Volume 3 - investigates the errors in the reconstruction of digitally recorded signals that are time truncated and band limited. Volume 4- is intended to aid the radar engineer in design and evaluation of HF radar systems. Major emphasis is on signal processing techniques and their effect on detection probability. Volume 5 - covers the development of a polarization monitor display for HF radar application.
