Abstract:

Static radar cross section data were acquired from a BQM-34F remotely piloted vehicle RPV at the U. S. Air Force Radar Target Scatter Facility, RAT SCAT, 6585th Test Group, Holloman AFB, New Mexico. The BQM-34F vehicle was configured to provide comparison data for several combinations of RCS andor Infrared IR augmentation pods. Both monostatic and 10 degree bistatic data were obtained for eight vehicle roll angles and six vehicle pitch angles. Horizontal and vertical polarizations were used at a frequency of 9130 MHz. The report contains a description of the measurement conditions as well as reproductions of the raw and processed data acquired. Modified author abstract
