Abstract
An experimental S-band phased-array radar system developed at the Communications Research Centre is described. The system was developed to provide experimenters with a means of acquiring real-time radar data for on-line or off-line analysis and to establish a test bed for new experimental devices or data processing techniques. The system is built in modular form, thus allowing various parts of the system to be easily interchanged with experimental devices. It is linked to a Digital Equipment Corporation 11/780 VAX computer which allows data to be transfered from the radar to the VAX in real time, or to be stored in high-speed buffers and then transferred in blocks directly from the buffers to the VAX. The experimenter, using the VAX, can adaptively control the radar, request new beam directions, control data acquisition, etc., via the link.
