A load balancing surveillance algorithm for multifunctional radar resource management
For all multifunctional radar systems the allocation of resources plays an outstanding role. Many radars have low priority on surveillance tasks. In challenging situations this leads to neglecting of surveillance beams in directions where many other tasks are done. This document presents a technique that enables multifunctional radar systems to keep on scanning overloaded surveillance sectors under the condition that all sectors have a similar revisit time. Since radar resource management depends on the overall system, a special configuration is considered in this paper. Additionally an outlook for a more generalised algorithm is given. The focus lies on systems with a rotating antenna.
