Abstract:

The report describes an experimental effort to assess the reflective properties of the sea surface at near grazing incidence on over-water passive ranging to distant airborne UHF to S-band sources using airborne receiving platforms. Two factors are involved the effective specularity of the surface to provide the required triangulation information and the capability to separate and accurately measure angles of arrival of the direct and the sea-reflected components with small antenna apertures compatible with airborne installations.
