Summary Radar is a legal necessity for the safe navigation of merchant ships, and with in the vessel traffic services is indispensable to the operation of major ports and harbors. Target detection by marine radar concentrates solely on civil marine operations and explains how marine surveillance radars detect their targets. The book is fully illustrated and contains work examples to help the reader understand the principle underlaying radar operation an to quantify the importance of factors such as the technical features of specific equipment, the weather, the target reflection properties, and the ability of the operator. The precision with which the targets are positioned on the radar screen and with which their progress is tracked or predicted depends on how definitely they have been detected, therefore a whole chapter has been devoted to the issue of accuracy. the various international regulations governing marine radar are examined, a brief historical background is given to modern day practice and the book closes with a discussion of the ways in which marine radar may develop to meet future challenges
