Abstract

This project examines the usefulness of radar data as displayed in a Range/Time/Intensity (RTI) plot. There is a focus on understanding what can be uniquely determined about a separation given information about later states of the system. Separation events were simulated from which RTI plots were created. Analysis determined that while determining a few parameters of the event was possible, the unique situation could not be rediscovered. Recommendations for future work include higher level models and longer time scales.
