Terrain Bounce is an electronic countermeasure intended to defeat Amplitude Comparison Monopulse Tracking. In this paper the countermeasure technique is described and its theoretical basis is developed. The two-target tracking problem, the Doppler offset and spreading of the ground-reflected signal, and a model for reflection from rough terrain are presented. A methodology is developed for analyzing the Terrain Bounce problem. The theory is applied to a typical Terrain Bounce geometry, and the resulting jammer requirements are derived.
