Abstract:

The influence of superstructure, masts and other obstacles on the parameters of shipboard radars is examined. Special attention is devoted to the effect of shipboard obstructions on errors in direction-finding. The fundamentals of the theory of radar deviations are presented, and errors in the radar measurement of elevation angle attributable to the influence of the earths surface are considered. Author
