Abstract
THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF GROUND BASED RADAR FOR AIR SURVEIL LANCE IS RESTRICTIVE IN THAT LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT CANNOT BE DETECTED WHILE THEY ARE MASKED BY TERRAIN FEATURES, OR BELOWRADAR LINE-OF-SIGHT. A POTENTIAL SOLUTION IS AN AIRBORNE RADAR SYSTEM WITH A LOOK DOWN CAPABILITY WORKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH GROUND BASED RADARS. THIS STUDY COMPARES THE AIRB BORNE EARLY WARNING POTENTIAL OF AEROSTATS, BLIMPS, AND REMOTELY PILOTED VEHICLES. EACH PLATFORM WILL BE ANALYZED FROMT HE STANDPOINT OF: CAPABILITY, COST, FEASIBILITY, MANPOWER, RISK, LOGISTICS AND ARRORDABILITY.
