Abstract
The Experimental Low Angle Tracking (ELAT) Radar distributed computing system which supports real-time data acquisition, processing, and distribution for radar applications is described. The underlying motivation behind its development was to build a general-purpose interconnect architecture for the real-time processing of high resolution algorithms to estimate the elevation of low flying targets. The common requirement of these algorithms is the collection of information from a number of different sources and its real-time processing and distribution to various destinations. The ELAT radar processing system consists of a preprocessing and a postprocessing section which are connected via a distribution network. Aside from supporting the processing system, the network also interfaces with a large number of other subsystems, each with its own characteristics.
