Abstract:

Monostatic measurements of the components of the target scattering matrix, monostatic and 30 degree bistatic measurements of target glint, as well as 10 and 20 degree bistatic measurements of target cross section were performed using vertical and horizontal antenna polarizations. Data were obtained from both the principal and crossed polarized components of the target return. Sixteen orientations of each vehicle were measured at a frequency of 5500 MHz. This report is published in three parts, each of which presents data acquired from both BQM-34 vehicles. Part a is limited to monostatic radar cross section and glint data. Part b presents radar cross section data acquired at bistatic angles of 10 and 20 degrees. Radar cross section and glint data acquired at a bistatic angle of 30 degrees are contained in Part c.
