Abstract:

The radar range equation is employed in test planning to predict the probability of target detection for a given set of test conditions target parameters, range, velocity, aspect angle, radar parameters, etc.. This technical memorandum documents the detailed development of the radar range equation including the effects of range gating, velocity gating, and both predetection and postdetection pulse integration.
