In order to perform EW modeling, it is necessary to understand the basic elements of radio propagation. This paper covers the so-called one-way link equation, the radar range equation, and several important link equations derived from them.

  • 4.1 One-Way Link Equation
  • 4.2 Propagation Losses
  • 4.2.1 Spreading Loss
