Abstract : A screening table for space radars was prepared so that coverage of space radars can be determined. The derivation of the equation from which the table was prepared is also presented. The table covers screening angles between 0 and 5 degrees, altitudes to 5,050 nautical miles, and ranges to 30,655 nautical miles into space. (Author)
