Abstract : A study of the application of adaptive processing to AMTI implementation in tactical air-to-air radars is reviewed in the report. A survey of existing radar and adaptive techniques was conducted that included a review of the AMTI modes of the FLAMR and F-15 radars; a review of existing adaptive techniques in antenna processing, thresholding, filtering, and controls; and a review of recent advances in pattern recognition, learning, search algorithms, and bionics. The applicability of the existing techniques to AMTI radars was assessed, and new adaptive and learning techniques were developed for AMTI radars with the survey as a foundation. (Author)
