Abstract
DRDC Ottawa has been tasked to formulate the means by which to extend the Karma simulation framework that was developed by DRDC Valcartier from the electro-optic and infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum to include the radio frequency portion as well. This document identifies the factors which affect the propagation of radar signals in a benign environment, including atmospheric and terrain effects. A selection of relevant models available in the open literature is described and discussions of the background physics of these models are given where necessary. Finally, recommendations for the implementation of target engagement through active rather than passive tracking are outlined.
