Abstract
This paper deals with the minimum detection range versus maximum signal to noise ratio (SNR) for several choices parameters like (peak power percent, radar cross section (RCS), antenna gain, coherently pulses, and duty cycle) by using MATALAB simulation program, these programs have been developed to make them easy for any user of evaluating the radar range and SNR equations and make them so faster and more convenient. After enter the input these parameters, the programs will calculate the detection range and SNR of a radar system and view the result as graphically.
