Icon THE COVER: A patrolling ship detects the presence of a potentially hostile aircraft approaching from the land. One of the most significant properties of a coherent radar is its ability to locate relatively small objects in the presence of large ones, such as mountainous terrains. This illustration depicts the radar pulling the target out of the land clutter, making it visible to the ship's personnel. (Cover illustration by Kenneth R. Moscati.)
