Paper Abstract

A new theoretical model for measurement of average distance from radar to the arbitrary distributed rough surface is concerned in this paper. Reviewing the assumption of the Brown's model, the application restrictions of traditional algorithm based on the model is presented. Through constructing simplified model of the scattering surface, combining the radar equation, analyzing the quantitative relation between the amplitude of the waveform and scattering surface, the simplified expression of average distance measurement is obtained. Furthermore, the concept of average distance measurement model is emphasized and the improvement method is suggested.
