Abstract : In this report the computation of the detection range of a low altitude target over a reflecting sea surface is presented. This detection range usually lies within the intermediate region between the interference and diffraction regions. Since computations of signal strength in this region are estimated by interpolation, the results are an approximation. It is recommended that a rigorous solution be pursued. Furthermore, ducting and other anomalous atmospheric conditions are not taken into account. Work along these lines is also recommended. (Author)
