Wavelength of radar operating frequency (in meters). The wavelength is the ratio of the wave propagation speed to frequency. For electromagnetic waves, the speed of propagation is the speed of light. Denoting the speed of light by c and the frequency (in hertz) of the wave by f, the equation for wavelength is: $$\lambda =\frac{c}{f}$$ 

Transmitter peak power in watts. 

The minimum output signaltonoise ratio at the receiver in decibels. 

Single pulse duration in seconds. 

Transmitter and receiver gain in decibels (dB). When the transmitter
and receiver are colocated (monostatic radar), Default: 20 

System loss in decibels (dB). Default: 0 

Radar cross section in square meters. The target RCS is nonfluctuating. Default: 1 

System noise temperature in kelvins. The system noise temperature is the product of the system temperature and the noise figure. Default: 290 kelvin
