Abstract : This report summarizes the development of a lightweight, man-portable battlefield surveillance radar set. It gives a description of the radar set, and a comparison of its parameters with those specified. The report describes the steps in the development and the modifications required to solve operational problems discovered during the service tests. A reliability prediction is then followed by recommendations for future work. The radar set was to operate in the frequency range of 9.0 to 9.6 KMc. It was to be capable of detecting and identifying personnel and vehicular targets by means of the doppler principle.
