Abstract:

The masking of a radars search volume by earths terrain is a problem of interest in the placement of radars. In practice, exhaustive surveys and modelled operations may be carried out before final placement is made it is not the intention of this paper to try to obviate such surveys, but to provide a means based on earths surface elevation data--such as from contour maps--to determine the sensitivity of a radars location to its performance, i.e., to give some measure to the intuition which says its better to be on a hill than in a hole.
