Paper Abstract

Theoretical and numerical analyses of the radiation directivity of a guiding radar system based on leaky coaxial cable (LCC) are presented both for buried and open installations in clutter conditions. The theoretical model of fields generated by a cable buried in a lossy half-space, such as a sub-soil medium, is introduced to describe the working characteristics of such a leaky coaxial cable. A numerical procedure which describe various kinds of LCC installations and can predict the effective characteristics of a radar system based on an LC with required parameters including its directional properties, is proposed to analyze the clutter effects and to optimize the sensitivity of such a radar system both for open and buried installations. The distribution of radiation around the cable is examined numerically by use of the LCC buried at depth d in a sub- soil medium, as well as open installation near different kinds of wall. The radiation pattern of such a radar system across the cable installed at height h above the ground is also investigated.
