minimum line of detection


minimum line of detection
The closest distance at which the approach of hostile aircraft must be detected to successfully intercept them before they reach their weapon release line. This line is the function of one’s own reaction time, the speeds of the intruder and one’s own interceptor, and the weapon release line of the enemy aircraft.
An intruder must be detected by the minimum detection line in order that the interceptor, scrambled for intercepting the intruder, can shoot it down before the weapon release line.
