Abstract:

This thesis presents an interactive computer program called MASK which generates radar and optical line-of-sight coverage envelopes based on terrain masking and refractive propagation effects. MASK is designed primarily as an aid in planning air strikes against radar defended land targets and has additional applications to air defense network planning. A large digital terrain data base provides extensive coverage of potential areas of interest to the tactical planner. Author
