target resolution

target resolution

A process to ensure that corrected radar targets do not touch. Target resolution is in terms of the azimuth and the range resolution. The range resolution is determined by the pulse width, whereas the angular resolution is dependent on the antenna-beam width. The velocity resolution is determined by Doppler processing. The target resolution is applied as follows: (i) between the edges of two primary targets or the edges of the airport surveillance radar primary target symbols; (ii) between the end of the beacon control slash and the edges of the primary target; or (iii) between the edges of two beacon control slashes. Mandatory traffic advisories are issued when this procedure is used. See radar resolution.

The choice of game engine can also have a substantial impact on how much memory bandwidth a GPU needs to avoid this problem, as can a game's target resolution.
From Figure 3, since the common beamforming is limited by the aperture of the physical antenna, the resultant beam width is wide and the ability of target resolution is low.
The amount of separation is either 500 feet vertically, target resolution (targets on radar can't touch) or 1.5 miles (depending on type of aircraft) horizontally, or visual separation.
This capability is primarily the result of target resolution improvement.
Section 5 discusses experimental results able to demonstrate the improved target resolution when passing from the first generation USRP to the new one developed by National Instruments.
They also offer finer target resolution to more easily distinguish bait, fish, structure and bottom.
We then shot an image of a target resolution chart to test how well the camera sensor could capture sharp details.
WINNER: Simrad BSM-2 Broadband Sounder | $2,495 WHAT IT DOES: This sounder is the only recreational sonar to incorporate commercial-grade, frequency-sweeping, pulse-compression (CHIRP) technology and delivers up to five times greater target resolution. WHY IT WON: It provides a far clearer picture of the underwater setting than previous technology could.
