Abstract : Experience with this system has indicated that in spite of several difficulties peculiar to this particular installation, it does provide a means of obtaining surveillance information not readily obtained by any other means, namely information concerning the movement patterns of vehicles. While not all moving vehicles are detected by the system, a very useful portion is, particularly that including vehicles likely to have military significance. Use of the radar relay link to provide a ground display duplicat ing that in the aircraft has proved to be a useful means of obtaining surveillance informa tion rapidly, however, an improvement in the precision of the relay system would be necessary to obtain information of the quality obtained from the airborne display.
