Range Glint Effects for Homing Interceptor Miss Distance

An expression is derived for the single hit range error due to the presence of a secondary scatterer in a range measurement made by a single frequency radar using gaussian pulses and a centroid estimator. The effect of noise is neglected since glint effects are only important at close range. These results are used to calculate the effects of glint on a homing radar which tracks the target for several hits. Contours of equal miss distance are presented for the two cases of decorrelated random phase between hits, and uniform phase advance.
