Abstract : This thesis evaluates the radar range performance of Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR-9) in thermal noise, as well as in presence of clutter and jamming. Radar software available from Artech House was used for the performance evaluation. Computation of detection range in this software is based on empirical calculation of detectability factor in contrast to Marcum-Swerling method which is based on standard radar detection theory. ASR-9 was chosen because it has no military significance and data on it is easily available. Radar, Performance Evaluation, Performance Methodology.
