system. Further, AEGIS is the highly integrated total ship combat system built around the weapon system. It is capable of simultaneous warfare on many fronts: air, surface, subsurface, and strike. As one might gather, the word "AEGIS" in the U.S. Navy has several meanings. At the top there is the AEGIS program under which are the AEGISAuthor: June Bullard Gaines. Goddard et. al. addressed the real-time scheduling of radar tracking algorithms us- ing a data-ﬂow model. The rest of this paper is organized as follows. Section 2 presents our model of the radar system, its associated re- sources and constraints. Section 3 describes our radar dwell interleaving scheme. The Aegis radar (1B version) can produce pulses with lengths of , , 25 and 51 microseconds, with a pulse compression ratio of This 51 μs maximum pulse length is consistent with a study that stated that the electromagnetic interference produced by an Aegis radar pulse would last for at most 52 microseconds. However, given the many upgrades to the Aegis system, including . This high-powered (four megawatt) radar is able to perform search, track and missile guidance functions simultaneously with a capability of over targets. The first Engineering Development Model (EDM-1) was installed in the test ship, USS NORTON SOUND (AVM 1) in AEGIS .
The Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR), also known as the SPY-6 is a next-generation integrated radar providing both exoatmospheric and air defense, and surface warfare capabilities on U.S. surface ships. 1 These radars will be featured on the Flight III Arleigh Burke Guided Missiles Destroyers and that will include an active electrically scanned array (AESA) that are slated to be 30 times more powerful than the current SPY-1 radar. The final Aegis . Currently, the primary Aegis sensor is the AN/SPY-1D, an S-band radar with near degree coverage. Aegis can also launch using data from remote sensors, such as the TPY-2 X-band radar. Onboard command and control is governed by the Aegis Combat System, which has been gradually improved through a series of hardware and software upgrades called. Lockheed Martin and the Aegis Combat System continue to keep pace with evolving integrated air and missile threats, introducing new capabilities to create the latest generation of advanced solid state technologies, integrated with the Aegis system, to provide . To model the SPY-1B radar system, receiver operating characteristics from Swerling II statistics were used (Alvarez-Vaquero ). Data was obtained from the AEGIS SPY-1B Radar Sphere Calibration Test Procedure of the Naval Sea Systems Command.
radar installed on all previous Aegis cruisers and destroyers. Aegis Ships in Allied Navies Sales of the Aegis system to allied countries began in the late s. Allied countries that now operate, are building, or are planning to build Aegis-equipped ships include Japan, South Korea. Aegis was a major success in naval warship development. Aegis ships are still being constructed by the U.S. Navy and the system has been adopted by several allied navies. And, Aegis missile systems are being installed ashore in Poland and Romania to provide ballistic missile defense for European allies. The Aegis ballistic missile defense (BMD) program, which is carried out by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and the Navy, gives Navy Aegis cruisers and. In my post of Febru , I discussed a number of planned new S-band radars, including the Navy’s Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR), which is scheduled to begin deployment on the Navy’s new Flight III Aegis destroyers in about In that discussion, I used the standard claim that the AMDR, also designated the SPY-6 (V)1, would be about 15 dB = 30 times more sensitive than the current SPY-1 radar .
