Radar - Radar - Factors affecting radar performance: The performance of a radar system can be judged by the following: (1) the maximum range at which it can see a target of a specified size, (2) the accuracy of its measurement of target location in range and angle, (3) its ability to distinguish one target from another, (4) its ability to detect the desired target echo when masked by large. Radio propagation is the behavior of radio waves as they travel, or are propagated, from one point to another, or into various parts of the atmosphere. As a form of electromagnetic radiation, like light waves, radio waves are affected by the phenomena of reflection, refraction, diffraction, absorption, polarization, and scattering. Understanding the effects of varying conditions on radio.

Recent endeavors include how to merge multiple modes in a dielectric resonator antenna to increase its bandwidth ( ); how a tsunami wave perturbs the ionosphere and affects the GPS signals, leading to a method to detect a tsunami within 15 minutes of occurrence (); how to design 3D miniaturized broadband antennas with size of λ/ Radar is a detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects. It can be used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain.A radar system consists of a transmitter producing electromagnetic waves in the radio or microwaves domain, a transmitting antenna, a receiving antenna (often the same.

Effects of sand and dust storms on microwave antennas and propagation by Saad Osman Bashir Download PDF EPUB FB2

Microwave signal microwaves and millimeter waves pass through a medium containing precipitations like sand and dust particles, the signals get attenuated through absorption and scattering of energy out of beam by the sand and dust particles.

The main object of this paper is to study the effect of sand and dust storms on. Effect of sand storms on microwave link had been presented and evaluated by finding the attenuation and scattering properties for suspended sand samples on a link that operates at 3GHz on desert region of Libya.

This link as the map shows located on the medial region of Libya and originates from the Mediterranean Sea shore deep into the desert. The main object of this paper is to study the effect of sand and dust storms on wireless communication, such as microwave links and GSM signal coverage, in the southern region of Libya (Sebha.

Abstract: Low rainfull volume suggests the promise of long paths using higher microwave frequencies for radio communication in desert areas. The pursuit of this promise gives rise to the need for understanding the effects of sandstorms on microwave propagation.

The effects of dust storms on propagation of electromagnetic wave at millimeter wave band are investigated. The propagation at millimeter wave band is affected by dust particles by way of signal attenuation. Formula for evaluating the wave attenuation at higher frequencies in a dusty medium is therefore developed in this work.

Abstract: Microwave (MW) and millimeter-wave (mmW) propagation are severely affected by dust storms and sand storms in arid and semi-arid areas. Electromagnetic waves may suffer from attenuation due to suspended particles during a dust storm.

This paper proposes an empirical model to predict the attenuation due to dust storms based on a one-year measurement of visibility, humidity.

The chapter provides a broad view of microwave antennas. The objective of this chapter is primarily to direct the reader to sources of detailed theory and design formation. and attenuation because of sand and dust. An organized discussion on terrestrial line-of-sight propagation, propagation beyond the horizon, and Earth–space propagation.

Dust storms increase attenuation for point to point communications at microwave frequencies due to increased scattering. Tropospheric back scatter communications might be enhanced between some locations.

You may see some unusual propagation as low in frequency as 6m. Static charge accumulation by antennas from dust storms can be a significant. WEATHER VERSUS PROPAGATION.

Weather is an additional factor that affects the propagation of radio waves. In this section, we will explain how and to what extent the various weather phenomena affect wave propagation.

These are described in the paragraphs that follow. Sometimes propagation enhancement is of interest. In such cases it is considered following the associated propagation loss.Description.

This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves.The propagation loss on an Earth-space path and a horizontal-path, relative to the free-space loss, is the sum of different contributions, namely: attenuation by atmospheric gases; attenuation by rain, other precipitation and clouds; scintillation and multipath effects; attenuation by sand and dust storms.
