Abstract
After reviewing the function of a Multiple Sidelobe Canceler in a typical radar application and providing an overview of the goals and architecture of the Acousto-Optic Null Steering Processor program, this paper describes the hardware configuration of the breadboard model and reports the performance of this system to date. Significant design issues and experimental observations are discussed. Some of these design issues have been discovered during breadboard evaluation; others were predicted by simulation and have been verified experimentally. This paper concludes by identifying those areas where the greatest potential for performance improvement lies.
