This report extensively revises NRL Report 5868 of the same title and introduces updated
material on many of the topics and extended treatment of others, The basic equation for
pulse-radar maximum-range calculation is presented in a form convenient for numerical
computation. Charts, graphs, tables, and auxiliary equations are presented for evaluation of
the various factors in the range equation. Included are graphs for the required signal-tonoise
ratio as a function of probability of detection, false-alarm probability, and number of
pulses integrated, for both nonfluctuating and fluctuating (Swerling Cases 1 and 3) echoes.
Also treated are the effects of receiver bandwidth, antenna and receiver noise, sea-reflection
interference, refraction and absorption by the atmosphere, and various system losses.
Standard definitions of range-equation quantities are given. The effects of jamming and
clutter echoes are treated briefly, as are also cumulative probability of detection and accuracy
of radar range prediction. A systematic procedure for range calculation, employing a
work sheet, is presented.
