Abstract : This report documents the design, construction, test and laboratory integration of the range tracker and associated subsystems for the RADC/OC Surveillance Laboratory's S-Band tracking radar. This development was accomplished over the period from December 1981 to November 1983 and was designed, constructed and tested entirely in-house. This report contains information on the use of the range tracker, its interfaces to other laboratory equipment, the philosophy behind its design, the detailed design of the hardware (including schematics, timing and cabling diagrams), the detailed software design (including flowcharts), and the mathematical description of its algorithms. The range tracker will be used in conjunction with other equipment in the OC Surveillance Lab in the taking and recording of radar data during flight tests. (Author)
