Abstract
The detection performance of microwave search radars operating in close proximity to the sea surface is evaluated. The effects of media characteristics on the propagation of electromagnetic waves have been incorporated. Specular and diffused scattering from a rough surface, and the effects of the curvature of the earth's surface have been included in the study. Additionally, surface ducting effects caused by atmospheric anomalies are presented. Some design and operational considerations which can improve the detection performance of a surface search radar, are also presented.
