Abstract:

Section II of this report describes the basic Venus radar experiment. Section III deals with the data processing one should perform to maximize the signal-to-noise ratio of received radar echoes assuming the planet is slowly fluctuating point target and the interference is additive gaussian noise. Section IV discusses how these operations are carried out by the computer. Section V gives a detailed list of the program parameters along with their use and format on input data cards, magnetic tape unit usage, and FORTRAN stops built into the program.
