Abstract
DRDC Ottawa has contracted C-CORE for software support services related to target tracking and coordinated radar resource management (RRM) using an Adaptive Multi-Function Radar simulator (Adapt MFR). During this work, some effort was spent revisiting and validating results for a single radar. The main purpose of this work was to evaluate the target detection and tracking performance of networked radars subject to non-ideal communication channels effected by transmission time delays and data loss. The experimental results show that as the communication channel time delay increased, track completeness, track occupancy, and frame time decreased. Results also show that as data error loss increases, less track observations are sent to the tracker resulting in lower track completeness, track occupancy, and frame times.
