The paper considers peculiarities of airway processing of air targets flying rapidly at small elevation angles, with regard for radio wave propagation over the underlying surface, and with high requirements to accuracy and reliability of the route data. The work includes results of simulation permitting to assess effectiveness of the approaches suggested.
