Assume the power density of a wave incident on a target located at range away from the radar is , as illustrated in Fig. 14.1. The amount of reflected power from the target is
where denotes the target cross section. Define as the power density of the scattered waves at the receiving antenna. It follows that
Equating Eqs. (14.1) and (14.2) yields
