dc.description.abstractThe requirement for WSMR to independently acquire and track the NASA Space Shuttle presented WSMR with one of the basic problems associated with missile and air defense systems - acquiring and maintaining a precision track of an incoming target. The popular solution is to use two radars--a broad beam for acquisition and a narrow beam for precision track. The WSMR solution is the S-Band Acquisition and Tracking System (SATS) which uses two existing passive telemetry trackers (J-10 and J-67) in conjunction with WSMR precision track radars. The existence of an S-Band transmitter in the Shuttle made the use of the Telemetry trackers possible.
