The sidelobe canceler in radar systems is a highly computational demanding problem. It can be efficiently tackled by resorting to the QR decomposition mapped onto a systolic array processor. The paper reports several mapping strategies by using massive parallel computers available on the market. MIMD as well as SIMD machines have been used, specifically MEIKO Computing Surface, nCUBE2, Connection Machine CM-200, and MasPar MP-1. The achieved data throughput values have been measured for a number of operational situations of practical interest.
