This report covers all work done under Contract DAAK02-68-C-0513 by Stewart Warner Electronics ( SWE ), Chicago, Ill., from 28 June 1968 till 15 July 1969 to develop and test the Ship Navigation Alarm System ( SNAS ). The prime objective was to determine whether an L-band radar system is more effective than the present S-band and X-band seaborne radar during inclement weather. The system was fabricated in accordance with an approved design plan incorporating anticlutter features such as sensitivity time control, automatic gain control, gating control, pulse counting control, and video-detection-level control.
