Signal Processor Tech Refresh

  • Development Effort:
    • WSR-88D Interface Panel:
      • Required to integrate IFDR into radar
      • Required to perform DAU, Maintenance Panel, I/O Panel and other functions
    • Develop software to test pedestal performance
    • Develop software to optimize pedestal controller S/W
    • Modifications to other software routines to accomodate new architecture
    • Software changes incorporated into RDA Build 17 software
  • Deployment Strategy:
    • Kit installed by ROC On-Site with Field Site El Tech Assistance
    • 3 day Installation and Check-Out (INCO) with overnight field test
    • Removed equipment disposed of locally
