Abstract:

Trials are described involving the detection and tracking of buoy-mounted radar reflectors using a Decca 916 radar on HMAS ATTACK. Observed blipscan ratios for various reflector typereflector height combinations are compared with the RANRL radar model. The agreement with the model enabled the prediction of the tracking performance of HMAS COOK navigation radar, as required for future oceanographic trials, over a range of environmental conditions.
