Abstract:

Two methods of measuring radar cross sections as small as 10 to the minus 10 power sq m are described. The first technique uses the return signal from a doppler radar. The second relates radar cross section to variation in VSWR produced by the target when placed in a waveguide. These methods were used to measure the cross section of mosquitoes. Results of these measurements at both X and Ku-bands are included. Calibration techniques are discussed for both methods of cross section measurement.
