Abstract : A portable radar simulator which when connected to a transmitting means such as a magnetron generated microwave threat transmitter simulates up to 2048 preprogrammed radar signatures. The portable radar simulator comprises a replaceable Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EPROM) which will hold up to 2048 preprogrammed radar signatures. Selection of a particular radar threat to be simulated is entered by an operator via thumbwheel switches located on the front panel of the simulator. The portable radar simulator simulates such radar parameters as jitter, stagger, frequency hop, simple and complex scans, pulse repetition intervals and frequency pulse widths.
