Abstract:

An experimental and analytical study of a particular time-domain signature for radar space object identification is described. Measured data presented for several simple metallic shapes which demonstrate the direct relationships between the physical properties of a radar target and its time- domain signature are presented. Valid time-domain signature waveforms obtained by combining three-frequency low resonance scattering data and short pulse radar data are also presented. Finally, a new, approximate technique for producing a three dimensional target image from time-domain signature data at three look angles is described and illustrated with computer-drawn isometric views of simple shapes.
