Provide radar calibration for ground based radars.
Provide radar calibration for ground based radars. Demonstrate the capability to perform critical calibration of over 120 Tri-Service C-Band radars. Calibration is needed to meet tracking requirements of orbital objects. Demonstrate low latency delivery of data (min vs days) 5U Cubesat with transponder and GPS. Experimental payloads including a C-band transponder and GPS. The primary goal of SHARC is to contribute to the calibration of Department of Defense (DoD) tri-service C-band radar installations.
