The present Miss Distance Indicator MIDI I Radar tracks a target and measures the vector miss distance of projectiles fired at the target. The major conclusion of this study is that the MIDI I limitation of operating against targets 150 meters or more above ground level can be improved down to 15 meters for gun scoring and 60 meters for missile scoring by applying a combination of radar techniques such as 1 pulsed Doppler to attenuate the ground clutter 2 multiple, selectable antenna beamwidths to meet both low altitude operation and scoring volume requirements and 3 a remote antennareceivertransmitter to provide favorable elevation geometry.
