ACP/ARP Radar Azimuth Converter

The BBG-ACP/ARP is a stand-alone converter which accepts the Azimuth Reference Signal from a radar system to compute the TRUE and RELATIVE Azimuth Reference Pulses and the Azimuth Change Pulses. These signals, combined with the radar video signal, enable display of the radar situation picture on many commercial and military radar consoles.

The BBG-ACP/ARP is a stand-alone converter which provides an interface between several commercial and military radar systems. The BBG-ACP/ARP accepts azimuth angle information from a radar system and generates one Azimuth Reference Pulse and 4096 Azimuth Change Pulses for each revolution of the radar sweep. Input radar signals are connected to a 25 pin connector (DB25P) and ARP and ACP signals are available on a 37 pin (DC37S) connector. The BBG-ACP/ARP operates from 115 Volt, 60 Hertz AC power. During power up, the BBG-ACP/ARP fully configures the interface for operation. Once configured, the converter performs synchro to digital conversion and provides the azimuth reference pulse and azimuth change pulses for each angle of the radar sweep.
