Through the Boston-based Radar Assessment and Development Laboratory (RAD Lab), Riverside Research is investing in the development of a powerful radar data analysis toolset called PHAROS: Performance, Health, and Analysis of Radar Operations Suite. Using this toolset, radar engineers, data analysts, and system maintainers are capable for the first time of rapid, quantitative evaluation of sensor performance and mission success, including efficient, reliable identification and troubleshooting of system anomalies and data artifacts across some of the highest-fidelity data collection radars currently fielded.
PHAROS extracts recorded data from the various sensors supported by the RAD Lab and transforms the data into a common format usable by a robust set of generic analysis tools. User-access to the tools and underlying radar data is provided through a single, intuitive graphical user interface.
Designed under our Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Program with CMMI level 3 compliance objectives, PHAROS is easily extensible to future sensors and is now in use by RAD Lab staff for addressing some of the most challenging technical issues facing the newest sensors under development, such as COBRA KING.
