Modelling of microwave propagation and clutter in a maritime environment
Abstract
For a radar system in a maritime environment, the probability of detection of a target at a low altitude is strongly dependent on the conditions of the atmosphere and the sea surface. In order to determine the detection probability of a target at low altitude, these conditions should be taken into account. This paper presents numerical methods to calculate electromagnetic propagation in an evaporation duct and to calculate sea clutter returns.
