The study presented in this report utilizes operations research techniques to develop an analytical methodology applicable to the definition of the airground components of a search system. The methodology specifies elements of the system expressed, whenever possible, in quantitative form. The kernel of the methodology consists of a set of models, submodels, and their interfaces that portray the nature and characteristics of an air-conducted search in terms of equipment and operational demands. Inputs to these models include considerations of both equipment performance characteristics and environmental conditions. Submodels include signal propagation, detection, and search planning. Use of these models leads to the conclusion that there is a critical relationship between search aircraft operating altitude and signal power. Author
