TECHNOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS IN THE DESIGN OF FUTURE U. K. HARBOUR SYSTEMS
This paper includes a review of the technology employed in some current UK systems and a summary of the primary limitations that have been identified. This is followed by some results from investigations into future surveillance and guidance systems. These include for surveillance, choice of radar frequency and polarization, position monitoring of floating navigation marks and the optimization of radar performance for sea clutter rejection. For channel guidance a summary of an assessment of possible systems is included.
