System Characteristics
The design of an OTH radar system is influenced by a combination of factors related to mission requirements, available technology, environmental conditions, and economic constraints. These factors not only determine the design of the various OTH radar subsystems, but also the practical operation and capabilities of the overall system. The first main objective of this chapter is to describe the general characteristics of the different subsystems in a nominal skywave OTH radar architecture. Naturally, this includes the transmit and receive subsystems, as well as adjunct subsystems that support the operation of the ...
