Radars operate at their best with long line of sight and clear environmental conditions. Superior security radars excel when the environmental conditions are less than perfect and the terrain is challenging. If careful consideration is given to the design of a physical security system taking into account the threat, environment, and overall system performance requirement, it is evident that ground surveillance radars provide superior performance and value over other perimeter sensors, and FMCW radars are superior to pulse Doppler radars for this application.
