Paper Abstract

Transformations of the statistical characteristics of the scattered signals from the low-altitude targets are analyzed, caused by the multipath propagation over sea surface and multiple reflections at path `target-surface- target'. It is shown that the target movement over the diffuse scattering surface leads to change of radar cross- section probability density function in comparison with Swerling's models. The differences of the experimental distributions from models increased with radar wavelength shortening.
