Abstract : The specifications of a stereotype maritime radar are assembled from a consensus of currently deployed radars for use with models of radar performance to define desired radar properties of a new series of navigation buoys. Model elements considered include detection thresholds in noise and clutter backgrounds, diffraction and duct propagation modes near the sea surface and shadowing by sea waves. Recommended buoy cross sections and estimates of detection ranges and probability of detection are given. (Author)
