Abstract
This report summarizes the experiments done for DRDC Ottawa by C-CORE under task 4 of Contract W7714-125424/001/SV. Four scenarios with different missile setups were designed to test the radar resource management (RRM) capability of the Adaptive Multi-Function Radar simulator (Adapt_MFR). A two-radar network system was simulated and radars were setup to work together in one of the three RRM types: 1. Coordinated network system with permanent assignment, the radar assigned to a track is not changed once initially assigned; 2. Coordinated network system with dynamic assignment, the assigned radar to a track changes at each track update based on the current calculated range and priority results; 3. Independent radars, each radar in the network works independently for detection and tracking tasks For each simulation, a number of metrics were calculated and plotted to evaluate the detection and tracking performance of the network. Several coding errors in the metrics calculation function and Adapt_MFR software were identified during the results analysis. The related code was modified accordingly in this task. The metrics plots before and after the modification were displayed for verification purpose.
