Abstract:

Frequency domain surface current and charge data are presented for the NASA F-106B aircraft when illuminated with a plane electromagnetic wave. Measurements were made on a 148 scale F-106A model that had been modified to represent the NASA F-106B. The measurement locations and the field quantities measured correspond to those on the NASA aircraft. Nine different excitations were used including those corresponding to the situations in HPD, VPD-11, and VPD-II fly-by tests performed at Kirtland Air Force Base. The amplitude and phase measurements on the models were performed over 100 to 4770 MHz and for the full scale aircraft this corresponds to 2.1 to 100 MHz coverage.
