2-Way (Radar) Path Loss Calculator

This 2-way path loss calculator uses the familiar Friis equation for distance-related signal strength decrease, plus adds the loss due to the radar cross-section of the target. As a rule of thumb, do not specify a distance (d) less than the wavelength. Click here for more information on path loss. Click here for a 1-way (radio) path loss calculator.

The calculator originally on this page has been removed because of compatibility issues with outdated Microsoft OWC components. A 2-Way Path Loss Calculator is included in RF Cafe Calculator Workbook for FREE.

Equations obtained from Electronic Warfare and Radar Systems Engineering Handbook - see example.
