DESCRIPTION: Have Centaur implements a new method of air target identification (ID) employing radar high range resolution (HRR). HRR uses a wideband pulse to generate a high degree of range resolution. This gives the radar the capability to detect individual scatterers within a given target and develop a one-dimensional profile of the scatterers along the length of the target. This 1-D profile is compared to an onboard database, containing stored profiles of all targets of interest, to determine the by-type ID of the target. The goal of Have Centaur is to provide fighters with an autonomous ID capability that is long range, high confidence, and nearly all-aspect.
JUSTIFICATION: Major advantages include:
1. Provides a source of positive, timely, and reliable by-type ID of hostiles, friendlies, and neutrals.
2. Improves overall mission effectiveness of fighters (increases lethality against hostiles, reduces friendly attrition, reduces fratricide).
3. Have Centaur can help fill several of the deficiencies in three of ACCs Mission Area Plans (MAPs): Counter Air MAP; Strategic Air Defense MAP; and Strategic Attack/Interdiction MAP. The key deficiencies that Have Centaur addresses are:
Hey Guys Im not sure where my post belongs but I figure since its about gear someone may know. Im curious does anyone knows If USA service people can wear another nationalities flag patch in conjunction with their own patch.
If it is possible are there any rules and regs on how those patchs should be worn..
