—Besides the well known microwave radar systems mainly used in navigation, surveillance, and control applications, High-Frequency (HF) radars gain increased attention during the last decades. These HF radars are operated in the 3-30 MHz frequency range and due to ground-wave or sky-wave propagation provide over-the-horizon (OTH) capabilities. Many of these… (More)
—High-Frequency (HF) radars are operated in the 3-30 MHz frequency range and have been used for several decades now. Sky-wave systems are able to keep large areas under surveillance, e.g. the whole northern coast of Australia. Some of these systems have caused severe interference to other radio services like the Russian " Woodpecker ". Currently, a network… (More)
High-frequency (HF) radars have been used since 20 years for remotely sensing ocean surface currents and ocean waves. Backscattered Doppler spectra contain two discrete lines, the frequencies of which (Bragg frequency) determine the current speed, and four continuous side bands, which allow to apply inversion techniques for retrieving ocean wave spectra.… (More)

High-frequency (HF) surface wave radars provide a unique capability to detect targets far beyond the conventional microwave radar coverage but also could contribute to the development and improvement of Tsunami Early Warning Systems. This paper describes the simulation of tsunami related signatures observed by HF radar at long ranges in case of a tsunami… (More)
