Abstract
Processing software for data collected in an experimental High Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR) project is implemented in the VAX-3800 computer and the FPS-5000 floating point array process. The software is used to process the data in-house so as to obtain insights in HFSWR sea clutter, noise and target characteristics. The data are examined to assess quality. Several deficiencies are observed in the data, including 60 Hz power source harmonic interferences and discontinuities in data sequences. Preliminary analysis of some of the data shows that conventional Doppler processing of the data permits the detection of ship and large aircraft targets at fairly long ranges. Plans for further analysis of these data are discussed.
