Abstract:

At a number of radar installations, a considerable degree of high angle clutter is apparent on the range height indicator of the ANFPS-6 radar system when covered by a CW-396A rigid radome. A de cription of the nature and source of the clutter along with steps taken to alleviate it is presented. Theoretical corroboration is given for the results obtained during a series of tests on the ANFPS-6 with the CW-396A radome.
