Abstract:

Techniques are described for the prediction and analysis of OTH radar operation. A complete ionospheric description is included and optimal computer techniques are utilized to give a practical means to handle the frequency- and antenna-scan management of the radar. Actual data are analyzed to show how the backscatter response from one frequency radar sounding can be used to derive the actual transmission-path characteristics that need to be known for effective radar operation.
