RADAR Systems - Coverage

Radar and radio coverage analysis:

Radar coverage analysis depending on radar site and target parameter

Radar coverage analysis requires calculation of path loss for every single point in space, or, in other words speaking, finding differences from a free space propagation. Simulation is carried using 3D terrain digitized map, containing geographical information specific to that kind of area, e. g. forest, sea, low vegetation, urban area etc. Depending on specified radar system, site location and target features, radar coverage area is calculated and displayed in terms of detection probability.
