An analysis was made of reflection cross sections observed for 8 satellites using the DOPLOC dark satellite detection system developed by the Ballistic Research Laboratories. Several related areas are discussed i.e., satellite signature, spin and tumble, scintillation and ionized trails. A brief description of the DOPLOC receiving system and antenna configuration is included. The method used for calculation of cross sections is given.
