Abstract:

In recent years, there has been a great interest in physically small, low-cost, low-energy-consuming electronic markers for tagging materials and vehicles, for air traffic control on the ground, and for surveillance or tracking of personnel over a limited area. The purpose of the study was to investigate the state of the art in low-cost beacon components that will provide a target-like signal for a maximum range of five miles in various weather conditions when they are illuminated by search, tracking, or surface-detection radars.
