Abstract

An objective procedure for determining optimum radar positions in a multiple-Doppler radar network is given for the objective criteria of maximizing the integrated reliability. It is demonstrated for arrays of three to seven radars, including cases where some positions are fixed. The optimum locations for a three-Doppler radar network are at the vertices of an equilateral triangle. Subject to the chosen objective function the best deployment does not result from simply adding additional radars one-by-one to an existing radar network.
