Abstract : This report describes use of the Data Processing/HAPDAR Field Test Facility as an adjunct to Passive Jammer Locator experiments by Syracuse University Research Corporation (SURC) at White Sands Missile Range, N. M. The Data Processing/HAPDAR Facility consists of a specially programmed IBM 360/65 Computer operating with the Sperry Rand HAPDAR (Hardpoint Demonstration Array Radar) at WSMR. The Passive Jammer Locator experiments were performed by an ABMDA team with representatives from SURC, Sperry, and RCA. The Data Processing/HAPDAR Facility was equipped with special programming and was linked to other WSMR sensors. The HAPDAR antenna and a remote RONDO facility were used to seek test jammers and to record jamming signals.
