There are seven main interceptability parameters or constraints. 1. LPI system mainlobe power at the intercept receiver 2. LPI system sidelobe power level at the intercept receiver 3. Area of mainlobe and sidelobes on the ground or at a certain threat altitude 4. Time of AOR illumination for mapping, tracking, or targeting 5. Intercept receiver density and search time 6. Intercept receiver detection response 7. Power management strategy.LPI radar or data link performance is a complex function of many variables.
