Abstract
In this report, we study beam scheduling techniques to resolve the radar resource management (RRM) problem, including non-adaptive and adaptive approaches. Performance metrics of beam scheduling are presented, followed by a brief description of the simulation tool Adapt_MFR that is used in the study. Both non-adaptive and adaptive techniques are described, and the details of adaptive target prioritization, time-balancing scheduling and track update intervals are quantified. Also presented are two testing scenarios and the results of the performance comparison. It is shown that the adaptive approach significantly reduces the tracking occupancy and frame time, leaving more time for radar detection and other functions. At the same time, the adaptive approach is still able to keep the track completeness at the same level. A few research topics are recommended for future work.
