Abstract : An Amplitude Comparison Monopulse radar is modeled using additive channel and system noise to the received signals. The amplitude of the incoming signal and the angle off boresight are estimated under the Maximum Likelihood Criteria. An ensemble of estimates of the angle off boresight are used to derive probability density functions for the estimate angle off boresight. From these probability density functions, a criteria for predicting break lock is derived. (Author)
