Radar Maximum Range Calculator

Pasternack's Radar Maximum Range Calculator produces an ideal maximum range of a radar antenna using the properties of the antenna.




Maximum Range:

Radar Max Range is determined, ideally speaking, on the properties of the antenna only. A signal at a certain frequency is transmitted, reflected, then hopefully, detected. Due to the three-dimensional propagation of radar waves, frequency hold the highest weight in determining range. Often, power consumption and range must be balanced for maximum usability.
