Abstract : The patent provides a communication system for use in a radar test facility which isolates the radar from the outside world and is capable of simulating a large number of aircraft and missiles, ground clutter, rain clouds, dust clouds, microwave chaff clouds, and electronic counter measures. It provides a communication system for a radar test facility which uses broad band IR directional data links to communicate simulated radar signals from a radar target generator to a plurality of infrared to microwave transponders. It provides a communication system which allows full threat testing of modern surface-to-air-weapons systems.
