Specifications for Reflectors and Radar Target Enhancers to Aid Detection of Small Marine Radar Targets

  • J. N. Briggs

Abstract

This paper considers the need for better detectability of small targets at sea using marine radars in the 3 and 9 GHz bands. The problems of using radar reflectors and radar target enhancers to improve radar cross section, particularly when clutter is present, are discussed in detail. The IMO carriage requirement and the lack of suitably robust specifications are highlighted, and a proposal is made for a standard family of radar reflectors to meet the requirement. Radar target enhancers are also considered together with how these and radar reflectors should be mounted for best effect.
