Figure 2-14.Pulse length versus range resolution.
How does pulse length affect the amount of
energy returned from each pulse?
Pulse length is usually measured in what units?
What is described by the term "resolution"?

What happens when a radars PBF is increased?
What is meant by the term "range ambiguity"?
If a radar had a pulse repetition frequency
(PRF) of 1000, what would be its maximum

FACTORS AFFECTING RADAR
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Define refraction
and refractive index. Recognize the effects of
refractivity on radar systems. Identify effects of
subrefraction, superrefraction, and ducting on
radar systems. Define and identify effects of
diffraction and ground clutter on radar systems.
Identify effects of scattering, absorption, and
solar activity on radar systems.
