2. 186,000 statute miles per second
3. 162,000 nautical miles per second
4. Each of the above is correct
Each of the above is
For an object that is detected 15 miles
from a radar set, what is the approximate time required for the rf energy to travel
to and return from the object?
1. 7 microseconds
2. 185 microseconds
3. 271 microseconds
4. 927 microseconds
927 microseconds
What is the formula for calculating the time for energy to travel 1 nautical mile?
1. 6080/984 ft per second
2. 2,027 yards/328 yards per micro second
3. none of these
4. Both 1 and 2
Both 1 and 2
The minimum range of a radar depends on the length of time of the transmitter pulse (pulse width) and recovery time. During this period, the radar can NOT receive energy. A radar set with a pulse
width of 5 microseconds and a recovery time of 0. 2 microseconds has a minimum range of approximately
1. 614 yards
2. 787 yards
3. 852 yards
4. 4,100 yards
852 yards
Which of the following is a RADAR or RADAR nautical mile?
1. 13.5 Micro seconds
2. 12.35 Micro seconds
3. 12.36 Micro seconds
4. 13.56 Micro seconds
12.36 Micro seconds
The range in nautical miles to an object, can be found by which of the following
1. Elapsed time/12.36Ms
2. Elapsed time/12.35Ms
3. Elapsed time/12.38Ms
4. Elapsed time/12.34Ms
Elapsed time/12.36Ms
Which of the following is the formula for determining the minimum range?
1. PW+recovery time/2X328 yards
2. PW+recovery time+164 yards
3. None of these
4. Both 1 and 2
Both 1 and 2
Of the following radar characteristics, which has NO effect on maximum range
capability?
1. Recovery time
2. Carrier frequency
3. Receiver sensitivity
4. Pulse-repetition frequency
Recovery time
The carrier frequency is often a limiting factor in the maximum range capability of a RADAR system because RF energy above________Mhz is rapidly attenuated by the atmosphere.
1. 2,500
2. 1,675
3. 3,000
4. 2,900
3,000
Which of the following characteristics of
a radar system determines the degree to which the radiated energy is affected by
atmospheric conditions?
1. Pulse peak power
2. Carrier frequency
3. Receiver sensitivity
4. Pulse-repetition frequency
Carrier frequency
Pulse-repetition time is described as the
1. reciprocal of pulse width
2. period of time from the beginning to the end of a transmitter pulse
3. period of time required for the pulse to travel to the target and return
4. period of time from the beginning of one transmitter pulse to the beginning of the next
period of time from the beginning of one transmitter pulse to the beginning of the next
Which of the following terms describes radar returns that exceed the prt of the radar?
1. Clutter
2. Ambiguous
3. Reciprocal
4. Acquisition
Ambiguous
What type of transmitter power is measured over a period of time?
1. Peak
2. Return
3. Average
4. Reciprocal
Average
