a. SSQ-53B/D DIFAR
b. SSQ-62B DICASS
c. SSQ-77 VLAD
d. SSQ-36 BT
What factors affect radar?
-Atmospheric Conditions: Causes radar waves to follow curved paths, can cause longer or shorter ranges
-Sea Return: Reflected energy from the radar striking the surface of the sea near the ship can make it difficult to detect/track close contacts
-Weather: Clouds and rains are highly visible on radar and can clutter the radar scope
-Antenna Height-The higher the radar antenna, the greater the detection range
