How do I specify the target-height in r.viewshed when using the operator through QGIS's processing toolbox? It doesn't seem to be available.

Who should I contact to adjust the interface such that the target-height option could be added to the r.viewshed dialogue box? Is that something that I can do myself?

In the mean-time, is the viewshed analysis plugin the only other option? It seems to routinely give me memory errors and crash, so I'd prefer to stay away from it.

You could try to edit C:\OSGeo4W64\apps\qgis\python\plugins\processing\algs\grass7\description\r.viewshed.txt

Computes the viewshed of a point on an elevation raster map.
Raster (r.*)
ParameterString|coordinates|Coordinate identifying the viewing position|0,0
ParameterString|observer_elevation|Viewing position height above the ground|1.75
ParameterString|max_distance|Maximum distance from the viewing point (meters)|10000
ParameterBoolean|-c|Consider earth curvature (current ellipsoid)|False

to include

ParameterString|target_elevation|Offset for target elevation above the ground|0.0
