Abstract : An analysis of the dynamics of a correlating radiometric sensor is given. Included in the analysis is the interdependence of target detectability, time-on-target, and target penetration into the surveillance volume. The use of practical components and their effects on the system performance were investigated. Several design charts are presented which permit graphic evaluation of various system concepts in terms of target and operational characteristics. (Author)
