As part of an investigation of the radar backscatter properties of axisymmetric conducting shapes, a study has been made of backscattering by a cone-sphere. This body is comprised of a circular cone with a 25 degree included cone angle, terminated by a tangent spherical segment. Measurements of backscatter cross sections over all aspect angles are presented for wavelengths, in the range from one-tenth to twice the radius of the spherical segment. Comparison of measured values with theoretical predictions shows that satisfactory agreement is obtained for all aspect angles.
