Overview

Range Dome Analysis

The Range Dome Analysis template allows you to analyze threats to flight corridors in 3D space. Range domes are used to model volumetric spaces that are within a direct 3D distance of a key point or installation, such as a viewing platform, radar station, or anti-aircraft weapon. Range domes are commonly used to evaluate the threat levels within a 3D corridor passing through, or near, a number of key locations. This template takes into account multiple site locations, multiple planned corridors, two range dome distances, and the impact of the surrounding terrain on the line-of-sight.

This template allows you to:

  • Digitize viewpoints/threat locations
  • Digitize proposed corridor routes
  • Generate volumetric threat zones within the proposed corridors

Requirements

Range Dome Analysis requires specific technical experience and software. Minimum system requirements for the ArcGIS Platform can be found on the Support website.

Range Dome Analysis is supported on ArcGIS 10.2.2, 10.3 and ArcGIS Pro 1.3
