Engineers behind Simrad's new HALO Pulse Compression Radar series found a way to combine the long-range performance of traditional pulse radar with the close-range target discrimination of broadband.
He added: "Now, in 2014, with the intent of the Americans to deploy interceptors to eastern Canada and the need to have radar to support the proper target discrimination of an incoming ballistic missile warhead, there probably would be more interest in our providing a site in Canada to build such a radar.
In busy littoral waters, target discrimination is critical so friendly ships aren't mistakenly engaged," said Dr.
They include more stringent time constraints, target discrimination and verbal commands that are more typical of a fire fight.
Technical information on radiometry, MTF theory, EOMUX and EMUX, atmospheric transmittance and target discrimination are also explained.
Its capabilities in target discrimination we are just beginning to understand," Horn says.
Schaum also developed novel techniques for anomaly detection and target discrimination using joint subspace models.
Designed to destroy short- to intermediate-range ballistic missile threats in space, Raytheon's SM-3 Block IB includes an enhanced two-color infrared seeker for better target discrimination.
Common module systems, EOMUX systems, EMUX systems, two-dimensional MTF, resolution, image quality, sampled-data systems, atmospheric transmittance, atmospheric MTF, target signatures, sensitivity and noise, system performance models, target discrimination and range predictions.
During his time at Fairchild, Farrow was responsible for developing an advanced hyper-spectral imaging sensor for target discrimination.
Lockheed Martin's cooled seeker can passively lock onto targets at significantly greater range than an uncooled seeker and offers superior target discrimination capability, especially in the high-humidity maritime environments frequented by U.
In addition to confirming the ability of our cooled tri-mode seeker to detect and lock onto threats from safe standoff range, we also demonstrated multi-sensor correlation and high-fidelity target discrimination.
