Abstract : This effort is centered on the Multimode Radar Signal Processor (MRSP), which is a high speed prototype signal processor based on the Westinghouse PSP-X design. The basic objective is to gain familiarity and programming proficiency with this relatively complex system, and ultimately apply its high speed capabilities to practical radar signal processing problems. Brief descriptions of the MRSP hardware and software configurations are included for reader continuity. The major portion of the report describes specific activities related to MRSP operations. Primary among these was the development of a software package to integrate a video output display system to the MRSP. Additionally, several representative programs were written to demonstrate the high speed signal processing capabilities of the MRSP as a complete system. Finally, several significant improvements were incorporated into the original MRSP support software package provided by the contractor. (Author)
