    This report presents data from which one may obtain the probability that a pulsed-type radar system will detect a given target at any range. This is in contrast to the usual method of obtaining radar range as a single number, which can be taken mathematically to imply that the probability of detection is zero at any range greater than this number, and certainty at any range less than this number. ...

    This report considers the probability of detection off a target by a pulsed search radar, when the target has a fluctuating cross section. Formulas for detection probability are derived, and curves off detection probability vs, range are given, for four different target fluctuation models. The investigation shows that, for these fluctuation models, the probability of detection for a fluctuating ta... View full abstract»
