Radar Positioning Analysis System
The Radar Positioning Analysis System is an extremely useful tool in aiding the Radar Section Chief to determine __________ .
whether a future radar site has potential for an adequate radar site
Meteorological (MET) data are crucial to the accuracy of hostile weapon location and friendly fire data. The MET parameters entered during radar initialization affect radar performance by correcting for atmospheric refraction. They are also important in estimating the effect of wind, temperature, and density on the projectile’s trajectory. However, the greatest effect on the accuracy of hostile and friendly weapon
impact prediction is caused by wind. Therefore, MET data should be entered into the radar. True or False?
What information is included in a SALUTE report?
