Abstract
The paper describes the development and operational capabilities of a generic tracking radar simulator (TRS) that is now in operation at Defence Research Establishment Ottawa. The TRS is part of the Radar/Countermeasures Simulation Facility. In this facility, target return pulses, jamming signals and clutter are generated under computer control and radiated through a two-dimensional array of dipole antennas into an anechoic chamber. Each element of the array is controlled by a PIN diode switch, which in turn is controlled by the ECM Simulator computer. A timing pulse from the radar indicates zero range so that it is not necessary for the radar to transmit an RF pulse. Delay circuitry is used to generate the low level target return pulses at the appropriate range.
