Radars for the Detection and Tracking of Cruise Missiles

  title={Radars for the Detection and Tracking of Cruise Missiles},
  author={Lee O. Upton and Lewis A. Thurman},
■ The advent of the modern cruise missile, with reduced radar observables and the capability to fly at low altitudes with accurate navigation, placed an enormous burden on all defense weapon systems. Every element of the engagement process, referred to as the kill chain, from detection to target kill assessment, was affected. While the United States held the low-observabletechnology advantage in the late 1970s, that early lead was quickly challenged by advancements in foreign technology and… Expand
