Abstract:

Monostatic radar cross section RCS measurements of a half scale model of the MQM-34D target drone are reduced and analyzed for vertical principal circular, and cross circular polarizations. The vertically polarized measurements are also compared with RCS measurements of a full-scale drone. The RCS measurements are reduced on a cut-by-cut basis and on an aspect angle region basis. The former method is more conventional and provides insight into some details of the scattering. The second method is of interest for statistical comparisons of the different polarizations.
