Radar Reduction and Analysis Program

RRAP is a software tool intended for modeling, interpretation, and evaluation of the AN/SPS-48G (V) radar data. RRAP uses MATLAB running on a Windows computer for radar video visualization and data analysis. RRAP has two independent functions, a PPI Video Display with interactive controls, and a built in Radar Metadata Assessment Tool (RMAT).

Below is a RRAP screen shot which shows the RRAP PPI Display with tracks and video and the Control Panel.

The PPI video display enables:

  1. Visualization of the basic radar operating environment with controls used for determining elevation extent of land, sea, and weather clutter. Typical controls are:
    1. Group/Beam Selection
    2. Tracks On/Off
    3. Input file
    4. Video type
    5. Scan control
    6. Range/zoom Controls
    7. Target Tracks with radar video
  2. Visualization of DMTI performance including:
    1. Multiple time around video
    2. Filter performance
    3. Clutter Reduction
    4. Target Detection and Tracking
RMAT enables verification of radar interfaces and computed stabilization coordinates. RMAT provides:
  1. Group/ Beam coordinate information
  2. Group SLB counts, Large Target counts, IIB counts
  3. File verification
  4. IQ data dump
  5. Group header contents
