Abstract

In order to develop Forward Scatter Radar (FSR) systems for use in maritime applications a fundamental understanding of the operating environment is required. Currently there is a lack of published experimental sea clutter data measured in the forward scatter direction at very low (almost zero) grazing angles. Therefore to facilitate further investigation, clutter data for such a system have been recorded at frequencies of 7.5 GHz and 24 GHz with static, medium gain antennas for low sea states 1-3. Statistical analysis of clutter is presented and results are compared for different radar parameters, waveforms and diverse sea conditions.
