Abstract:

The individual data cuts of the radar cross section and glint measurements of the MQM-34D are reduced using a 5 degree sliding window. Plots of the average and standard deviation of the radar cross section and glint are presented for each of the 16 basic cuts for each polarization and each bistatic angle, where applicable. The standard deviation of glint varies widely with aspect angle, and is largest near broadside as was expected. There are a few cuts where the average glint was outside the extent of the target for 5 degrees or more.
