EVALUATION OF THE PRODUCTION IMPROVED RADAR QUANTIZER GROUP MODIFICATION TO THE PRODUCTION COMMON DIGITIZER

An improved radar quantizer group (RQG) was installed in the production common digitizer (PCD) located at the Elwood, New Jersey, National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center long range radar site. The modified RQG improves search target detection in radar clutter environments. A series of subsystem and system tests was conducted to compile data comparing digitizer performance using the improved RQG/PCD with performance from an unmodified PCD. Test results indicate increased search target detection and reduced automatic clutter eliminator (ACE) total blank in weather clutter areas. It was concluded that the modified PCD increased search track life in radar clutter environments. (Author)
