Abstract
An experimental transceiver for a radar-based Missile Apprach Warning System (MAWS) was developed at the Defence Research Establishment Ottawa to aid in studying the most effective techniques for design and implementation of such systems. With the help of Canadian industry, the experimental system was completed in November of 1992. The transceiver was designed for airborne use, and will be undergoing flight trials in 1994. The MAWS transceiver is an L-band pulse Doppler radar with frequency agility, multiple pulse repetition frequencies, and pulse coding capabilities. This report outlines laboratory tests conducted on the experimental DREO MAWS transceiver, and shows performance specifications achieved by the system. These tests were designed to verify critical parameters of the transceiver, while providing a broad base of information that will aid in interpreting data from future flight tests. As well, the information contained in this report serves as a foundation for evaluating improvements made through futher design modifications.
