Abstract:
Radar is a critical element of the avionics system package in today's fighters, but often remains the least instrumented component of a test aircraft. The complexity and high-output data rates associated with a modern radar system usually precludes in-flight testing as part of a typical flight test program; often a specialized system is designed that can be flown in a conventional (non-fighter) aircraft. While such testing in isolation provides useful information, today's fighters rely on radar in conjunction with many highly-integrated systems; the absence of radar data as part of the instrumentation package provides at best an incomplete view of the operation of the aircraft. As part of a modernization task within the F-22 instrumentation program, a radar recording system has been designed which allows for real-time instrumentation of the existing F-22 radar system as part of the conventional instrumentation installation in the jet. This system is designed to support the acquisition of I and Q data from the onboard radar processor and the radar display maps generated by the pilot during normal mission activities. This paper describes the design requirements of the instrumentation package and how those requirements were met using a networked data acquisition system.
