Executive Summary

The way radars are viewed by the Department of Defense (DoD) is migrating from that of monolithic "Black box" providers of primary interpretable radar data products for pre-planned users, to that of flexible providers of on-demand sensing services widely available to an interconnected network of unanticipated users. Radar systems open architecture(s) are the key to fully realizing the promise of the paradigm shift to enterprise sensing. To that end, they offer reusable technology for radar systems, facilitate the use of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components from a diversified vendor base while respecting intellectual property rights, expedite flexible and fast technology refresh, create a means for distributing innovative techniques and technologies - and thus lower the expense of developing new radar systems, and maintaining deployed ones.
