Fixed Radar Spectrum Utilization Model

Stanley I. Cohn; C. P. Jacobs; William M. Moran


This report contains a description of the Fixed Radar Spectrum Utilization Model. This model is automated and can be used to obtain: (1) a measure of spectrum crowding in a specific geographic area and radar frequency band, (2) a list of preferable frequencies at which a new radar system may operate with the least objectionable consequences, and (3) an indication as to the suitability of a proposed location as the site for a new radar system. The program, comprising pre-processor and processor programs, has been written in Fortran for the UNIVAC 1108 computer.

This report includes three appendices.

Keywords: interference; spectrum efficiency; spectrum measurements
