Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to extend the results of a previous paper comparing the LPI performance of optical and millimeter wave satellite systems to include the effects of scattering on optical LPI performance. As before, the LPI figure of merit used to compare the two media is the Circular Equivalent Vulnerability Radius (CEVR) . The CEVR is defined as the radius of a circle which has the same area as the irregularly shaped region within which an airborne interceptor at a fixed altitude can detect the transmitted signal. Typically, this region is projected onto the surface of the earth to provide a degree of normalization with respect to interceptor altitude.
