Abstract:
Modern aircraft testing and training increasingly demand the use of multiple targets. A novel method to meet this requirement is to use the new AN/MPS-39 Multiple Object Tracking Radar (MOTR) with Vega Target Control System equipment. The AN/MPS-39 can be loosely described as the equivalent of ten AN/FPS-16 radars. This equivalency, due largely to the AN/MPS-39’s phased array antenna, immediately suggests the controlling of multiple target drones as an added capability to the radar’s basic and demonstrated function as a precision metric instrument. This paper demonstrates the adaptability of the AN/MPS-39 MOTR to the use of VTCS, thus exploiting the AN/MPS-39’s inherent capability to control multiple target drones simultaneously.
