Abstract:

The objective of this thesis was to show that introducing radar detection characteristics into one of the post-processors to BLUEMAX II, a terrain followingterrain avoidance model, would decrease the number of detections by radar against a target. Additionally, it sought to decrease computer CPU run time. The objectives were met through the writing and implementation of two programs. DETECT and MAXMIN. A third program, TFTAEXP, was modified. The radar parameters used in program DETECT approximate the parameters of a tracking radar the radar cross section values and the flight path that was used were provided by ASDENSSE. Results of several runs were compared to a base model that is currently in use at the Air Force Studies and Analysis Office. Washington, D.C. and by ASDENSSE, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
