The purpose of this study was to establish a technique for determining the radar crosssectional area of any active radar augmenter. This proposal suggests that math matical calculations are sufficiently accurate to allow test personnel to base conclusions on the calculated values. The theory and mathematics of the proposed technique were established, and an experiment was accomplished to obtain the accuracy of the computations. The overall accuracy of the method depended upon the accuracy of the computations plus the accuracy of the measuring instruments. Technique accuracy was found to be 1 db. Since an accuracy has been established, this technique can be utilized by test personnel when evaluating active radar augmenters. A five-step procedure for evaluating an augmenter is presented.
