Abstract : This paper is an attempt to give the uninitiated researcher a general working understanding of how ground-to-ground combat surveillance radar works, its capabilities, its limitations, thinking concerning employment, and contemplated problems. The content of this paper is based on available interim organizational and doctrinal concepts, reports of equipment tests and evaluations, equipment instructional manuals, available military instructional material, and discussions with military personnel concerned with radar surveillance of the battlefield. It is not based on the observation of equipment or personnel performance in the field. (Author)
