Abstract
The work performed in support of the radar procurements for the Aurora Incremental Modernization Program (AIMP) and the Maritime Helicopter Program (MHP) during the evaluation and design phases is presented. The report focuses on the maritime surveillance and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) modes and develops appropriate methods for predicting and modelling their respective performance. Issues such as the choice of appropriate target and clutter models, detection techniques and SAR imaging performance are described along with an analysis of the modelling limitations and cross-references to supporting documentation. The coupled issues surrounding the development of the requirements specification and the supporting test and verification plan are also discussed. The philosophies employed in the development of specifications and test plans, and the dependencies on the requirements are tailored to complement the modelling techniques. A discussion of potential pitfalls in specification and testing approaches is provided along with examples.
