Angular glint produces errors in radar-indicated target direction and in the Doppler frequency. Glint arises from phase perturbations of the radar signal echoed from a complex target, as compared to those from a point target. The phase gradient VΦ represents these glint effects very well. The direction of this vector is that of radar angle sensing. The… CONTINUE READING
