The procedure of the insertion of a digital GaAs radar signal processor (GRASP) technology into the E-2C airborne early warning system is described, with special attention given to the hardware technology and design considerations. Two subsystems will be included in the digital GRASP: the displaced phase center antenna and a skew Doppler processing function (which is a new algorithm that, when implemented, will replace the coherent integrator). The strategies used for implementing the digital signal processing algorithms in GaAs are presented.
