range delay

range delay

[′rānj di‚lā]
(electromagnetism)
A control used in radars which permits the operator to present on the radarscope only those echoes from targets which lie beyond a certain distance from the radar; by using range delay, undesired echoes from nearby targets may be eliminated while the indicator range is increased.

In addition to informative, extensive graphics, STK sets up the T400CS Channel Simulator so it can produce exact range delay, Doppler shift, range attenuation, AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise), and fading for the specified scenario.
In addition, the T400MSP applies static or dynamic propagation path attributes such as Doppler Shift, Range Attenuation, Range Delay, and Fading.
For example, if an airplane flying over a humvee was transmitting signals to the ground, the link would be affected by high Doppler shift rates and varying range delays that the humvee's receiver would need to track.
