The radar equation is used to predict echo power and interfering power to assist in making the determination of whether or not this condition is met. Use of the radar equation accomplishes the following: Assists in the design of radar systems to meet the detection specifications set by the users. Establishes the relationship between the signal power received and the radar and target parameters Describes the power received from interfering sources, including thermal noise, clutter, jamming, and EMI. Provides a means for predicting signal-to-interference ratios, and for predicting the maximum range at which targets of a given RCS will produce a specified signal-to- interference ratio.
