Abstract : A significant number of Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) radars are used in various military applications, from guided weapons (such anti-ship missile), to large platforms (aircrafts, ships), to large systems (Integrated Air Defense Systems - IADS). The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the performance of netted LPI radar systems. To do so, it commences with establishing the theoretical background for the LPI radar techniques and detection methods. Additionally, it presents existing LPI assets along with their operational characteristics to provide the reader with a useful tool for comparative analysis of the LPI radar market. As this work focuses on LPI radar networks, specific emphasis is given to clarifying the notion of a netted system; the conceptual and mathematical background for such are presented in a separate chapter.
