Abstract : The data presented in this volume consists of concepts, design approaches, configurations and analyses with recommendations for frequency scanning radars compatible with the target acquisition subsystem requirements of the HELVADS, FALW and FALW-D weapon systems. In arriving at recommendations for the three subsystem requirements, a number of candidates were examined and reported on in the monthly progress reports. These candidate configurations for FSR's, with brief descriptions indicating the more important advantages, disadvantages and reasons for recommendation or non-recommendation have been included. In those instances where an overall acquisition subsystem group is shown as opposed to strictly FSR configurations, brief descriptive data for those elements other than FSR data was included, however, time and scope of effort limited data to the level necessary only to provide an understanding of the group concept.
