Peak power estimate from radar equation

estimates the peak transmit power, `Pt`

= radareqpow(`lambda`

,`tgtrng`

,`SNR`

,`tau`

)`Pt`

, required for a radar operating
at a wavelength of `lambda`

meters to achieve the specified
signal-to-noise ratio, `SNR`

, in decibels for a target at a range of
`tgtrng`

meters. `tau`

is the pulse width. The
target has a nonfluctuating radar cross section (RCS) of 1 square meter.
