ABSTRACT

Estimation of Atmosphere and Ocean Surface Influence on Radar and IR Sensor Performance for MDP   [open pdf - 269KB]

Threat surveillance is an essential part of maritime domain protection, as seen in past attacks against naval vessels in the Northern Arabian Gulf and other conflict areas. Variations on radar and sonar details caused by lower atmosphere and ocean surface conditions can lead to a problematic situation involving dire consequences; this newsletter seeks to investigate some past situations where these shortcomings were evident, as well as suggesting methods such as integration, data transfer, and selection and adaptation of surveillance methods as a means of helping to promote heightened awareness and alertness.
