Abstract:

As part of an experimental investigation of ground clutter, data on the magnitudes and distribution of large discrete clutter returns was collected using a radar situated at the Boston Hill field station in North Andover, Massachusetts. Although the experiment is limited in scope and the instrumentation unsophisticated, the measurement program has confirmed some earlier ideas about discrete land clutter, and suggests other promising lines of experimentation. The objectives of the report are to a describe the instrumentation, measurement methods, and physical environment, b make available the measured results obtained thus far, and c provide the background for future effort.
