Adding Communications Mode Capability in the Periscope Detection Radar (PDR)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This proposal describes a low-cost real-time network for sharing the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Common Tactical Picture. An architecture is proposed that uses the SPS-74 Periscope Detection Radar (PDR) as a broadcast transmitter and a low-cost digital receiver system that is installed on all participating units. A technical description is provided for the key components of the transmit and receive subsystems including estimation of key performance parameters. The system proposed is shown to have data communication capability comparable to Link 16 and is expected to be far less expensive than integration of the radar and tactical decision functions with existing combat systems and tactical data links.
