[INLINE] Sensor Cooperation in Land Clutter _________________________________________________________________ Naval operations conducted in the littoral environment require that attacking aircraft and missiles be detected and engaged over land or over water in the face of heavy land clutter. Search sector cooperation between the defending ships using CEC can significantly increase their detection and track ranges and consequently increase battle space. [INLINE] Without CEC _________________________________________________________________ Operating independently, without CEC, each of the ships must spread its radar energy over the entire volume, limiting the time and energy available to search in the difficult land clutter region. [INLINE] [INLINE] With CEC _________________________________________________________________ Operating together, with CEC, a single ship can search the entire volume while the other ships concentrate on the land clutter region. Data from each of the ships is distributed to all the ships and combined into an identical composite track picture on each ship. This picture, superior to that available from any single sensor, allows significantly earlier detection and more consistent track on attackers in the clutter. ______________________________________________________________________ Next page [LINK] Return to CEC Table of Contents page [LINK] Prev page ______________________________________________________________________ Updated: 10 Oct 1996 Webmaster
