Item description for Radar Reflectors for Cruising Sailboats: Why They Work, How to Evaluate Them, and What the Limitations Are by Philip G. Gallman...

SAILING / SAFETY AT SEA / RADAR. The fascinating and complicated world of radar reflectors (more accurately known as radar target enhancers or RTE) is tackled with both technical accuracy and pragmatism, allowing yachts people to both understand and select a product to meet their needs. The challenging problems of making any vessel more visible to radar-equipped vessels are addressed, pointing out the fallacies and misconceptions of traditional "knowledge" about the subject. By carefully modeling the performance of many well-known RTE with clear diagrams, Dr. Gallman brings clarity to how these products work while at sea. Over 50 charts and tables, 16 color plates, and index included.
