All radars are different (even if only due to the physical impacts of their operating locations) and creating a ‘rule of thumb’ for wind farm developments near all systems would require such a level of generalisation as to make it probably worthless. Therefore, in considering the effect of wind turbines on radar, developers need to focus on individual radars in the vicinity of their planned development. It is important also that developers appreciate the nature and extent of any problem. (Novak, 2009) For example, studies into air defence radars that take no account of the associated Command and Control systems may be of very limited value. Because both civil and military aviation communities have legitimate interests that must be protected; this includes protection against the adverse effects of wind turbines. However, there is scope for flexibility throughout the process of considering wind farm applications.
