Abstract:

This is the final report on Contract No. F33615-88-C-1792 for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base over the period August 1988 through May 1991. The overall goals and accomplishments are summarized. The goal of this contract is the investigation of monostatic and bistatic polarization and electromagnetic phenomenology at various low and high frequencies such as L, X and Ka bands for the purpose of enhancing the performance of synthetic aperture ground imaging radars for automatic target detectionclassification. This is accomplished via measurements and analytic modeling of simple scatterers and complex targets comprising an ensemble of simple scatterers. Specific radar scattering data are obtained in the frequency range 2-18 GHz on scale model targets and at frequencies below 2 GHz for full size targets. In both cases, coherent magnitude and phase signal versus target orientation, frequency and polarization are collected.
