Book Research

Post by amystrywrtr » Tue Jul 24, 2012 5:15 pm

Hello everyone,

I am doing some research on E2C RADAR capabilities and limitations for a fictional book that I am writing. My question is concerning the limitations of the RADAR and what the operator sees. Can the operator on the current E2C Hawkeye see a fiberglass hulled go-fast boat (the ones used by drug runners about 50 foot in length) travelling at approximately 100 knots?

If the small boat is visable, how quick can the RADAR see it?

Thank you for your help.

Steven Raymond
