Chapter 9  Operational Performance

ESM Detection Range

Far-field received power levels from a transmitter over sea paths.

Radar Detection Range

Far-field received power levels from a radar target over sea paths.

Sea Surface Scintillation

Models the effect of surface wave slopes in the sea occurring between a transmitter and receiver causing variations of the surface reflected part of the received signal.

Bistatic Reflections

Contours of constant time-delay and constant RCS reflected signal for separated transmitter and receiver against the same visible target.

ESM Clutter Modeling

Received power v time response from a complex modulated pulsed radar when both radar and receiver are immersed in a cluttered land or littoral environment.

Spatial Decorrelation of Clutter

Amplitude and direction of arrival v time response received from a complex modulated pulsed radar when affected by local ground clutter.

Passive Location

Accuracy comparison of DF and TDOA location systems having random errors.

ESM Sensitivity Advantage

Sensitivity and range advantage probability of an ESM system located on a known RCS platform.

Jammer Protection Zones

Protection regions for jammers operating in self-defense or area defense modes.
