Abstract : A moving target simulator is provided for testing a wide variety of radars without the need for a direct connection between the simulator and the radar under test. The simulator accurately replicates the pulse width and amplitude of transmitted radar signals and provides a delay feature that permits simulated target scenarios to be presented to a radar under test. The simulator incorporates control features that allow Doppler frequency changes to be accounted for and that permit signal level changes to be made as in accordance with inverse 4th law distance-dependent target-return power variation.
