Abstract
The Surface Radar Section of DREO is developing a portable HF radar. The report presents an overview of the radar and analysis of a series of tests done in 1998. The equipment including antennas and electronics is described. A series of electronics problems was encountered, but none of them have a significant effect on the operation of the system. The receiver system was calibrated using loopback runs, source measurements and meteor reflections. Measurements of interference, meteors and environmental clutter at 24.5 MHz are presented. The results of the tests are used to estimate the performance of the portable radar in Line-of-Sight mode against theatre ballistic missiles.
