A status report is presented on an investigation to evaluate selected radar cross section measurement ranges. The evaluation procedure involves a comprehensive series of measurements on 7 models to be made at 5 specified ranges at 4 polarizations and at several frequencies. One of the 5 ranges will measure 8 models and a sixth range will measure only 2 models. The ranges are discussed and the models to be used are described. Some theoretical radar cross section calculations are presented and a method of analyzing the digital and analog data is given. Existing radar cross section measurement capabilities and limitations are discussed and some recommendations for needed improvements are made. Information is given on future plans for the investigation. Author
