Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to develop a methodology for modeling fighter aircraft radar detection range performance. Response surface methodology is used to form a meta-model of the TAC BRAWLER Air Combat Model. Using experimental design theory, detection range data was collected using TAC BRAWLER and regressed to develop an equation for predicting radar detection range. The resulting equation is valid for specific ranges of the targets radar cross section, altitude, and airspeed and the attackers altitude and airspeed. Keywords Military theses.
