(PDF) Radar Reflection Tracking Error

Radar flare is a target scattering phenomenon that typically causes an error in the calculated position of the target. Glitter, as used in this article, refers to any error caused by the target in the apparent position of the target as measured by the actual Oops You Broke It Again tracker, now commonly installed by the radar tracker.

Radar reflection is an object scattering phenomenon that causes some error in the position of the target being measured. The gloss used in this article refers to a target caused by an error in the apparent position of the target, which is mainly measured by a radar tracker, currently mainly a coherent radar tracker.


Angular flicker or “reflection noise” refers to changes inThe angle associated with the arrival of electromagnetic backscattered waves on the radar. Active sonar tracking systems are also subject to interference for the same biological reason: if the target consists of many point reflectors, mounds of individual elements reflected from each other interfere with each other and cause fluctuations in the echo signal arriving at the main receiver. As the viewing angles of individual elements change, the relative amplitudes and phases of the components present also change, resulting in reliable strabismus whose amplitude is disturbed by the return signal and noise in the angle measurement. These tracking errors are more pronounced at short intermediate and target distances: a target detected at longer ranges appears as a single point within the resolution cell of its tracking block. Errors caused by reflection measurements can occur when the viewpoint is completely outside the exact limits of the target.

  1. What is target scintillation?

    Flicker is a change in the amplitude of a specific target on the radar display. This is closely related to the flickering or wandering of the target, the apparent displacement of the target from its average perspective. This effect can be caused by a shift in the effective display point on the target, but can also have other causes.

  1. What is glint angle in radar?

    Angular reflection or “reflection noise” refers to changes in the intentional angle of incidence of backscattered electromagnetic waves transmitted from the radar cable box. Measurement errors introduced by Glint can lead to a situation where the track point is currently completely outside the physical boundaries of our target.

If each target consists of several key reflectors, the waves reflected by the female elements will interfere with each other.
Causes receiver echo fluctuations. Since the basic form of individual substances changes,
the relative amplitudes and phases of the normally scattered components also change, leading to scintillation in the abundance

What are the equipment systematic errors of pulse radars?

In the tracking process of pulsed radars, systematic equipment errors mainly consist of zero-value errors, wave errors, and delay errors associated with transponders. For documents measuring distances and angles, the mathematical model of the error of the scientific apparatus is as follows:

What is glint angle in radar?

Corner flare or “reflection noise” refers to fluctuations in the measured sense of the incoming backscattered electromagnetic surf transmitted by the radar. Measurement errors caused by reflections can cause the complex point to be completely off target.

What does target glint mean?

Abstract: A theory is presented to describe the statistical aspect of radar tracking of an impossibly isolated structure such as an aircraft or warship. The apparent and effective radiolocation clinic were determined and their statistical shares were obtained.
