Abstract : A radar target simulator apparatus and method especially useful with a pulse compression radar located in a remote, unattended, and unpowered, terrain. Provision for generating signals which will pass through moving target indication (MTI) and minimum velocity threshold circuits are included. Transmission fo the detected simulated target data through narrow-band communications lines, such as telephone lines, is contemplated. The capability for minimum discernible signal and radar power output evaluations are also provided.
