This thesis examines the radar range performance of Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR-9) in thermal noise, as well as in presence of clutter and jamming. Radar software available from Artech House was used for the performance evaluation. Comparison of detection range in the software is based on empirical calculation of detectability factor in contrast to Marcum-Swerling method which is based on standard radar detection theory. ASR-9 was chosen because it has no military significance and data on it is easily available.
