Abstract:

Radar detection theory is used to develop mathematical models for determining the potential of a scanning pulse acquisition radar to detect a nonmaneuvering, nonjamming, low-altitude target. The ground-based acquisition radar scans with a pencil-beam antenna pattern, and the target radar cross section is characterized by scan-to-scan fluctuation Swerling Case 1. In addition to studying detection in free space, the effects of multipath propagation and ground clutter are evaluated. Computer programs, given in APL language, dynamically simulate the radar-target encounter.
