Summary
OTH-B WAS developed to support the North American Aerospace Defense Command's (NORAD) continental air defense mission. This mission consists of (1) tactical warning and attack assessment, the primary element for detecting, tracking, and assessing threat targets; (2) airspace control, the secondary element for controlling access to U.S. and Canadian airspace; and (3) damage limitation, the tertiary element, should an attack on North America ever occur. OTH-B WAS specifically designed to provide early warning of an attack by detecting and tracking bomber-size (Large and medium) aircraft. In the 1980s, DOD established a goal for OTH-B to detect and track cruise missiles (small targets), although a formal requirement was never established. This goal was recently suspended pending evaluation of a small target detection performance report and funding priorities
