Abstract:

The report provides a work form and rationale to perform hand calculations of the radar range equation. The techniques described cover the conventional geometric aspects of the radar equations as well as the effects of rain clutter, rain attenuation, atmospheric attenuation, sea and land clutter, and pulse integration for both conventional pulse and chirp clutter. It is complete, requiring no further texts, tables, references or slide rules.
