Abstract:

In January 1997, the Range Commanders Council Signature Measurement Standards Group RCCSMSG, in coordination with the RCC Taskmaster, established RCCSMSG Task 08 titled, DoD RCS Certification Feasibility Demonstration for Static and Dynamic RCS Measurement Facilities. Referred to herein as the DoD RCS Demonstration Program, the task assessed the feasibility of establishing common documentation standards to describe and certify the operation and capabilities of the DoDs diverse RCS measurement facilities located throughout the United States. Through the mutual efforts of the United States Air Force USAF 46 Test Group, in cooperation with the RCCSMSG Radar Committee, the demonstration program described herein was entirely successful and should lay the groundwork for similar technical or laboratory calibration certification efforts throughout the DoD RCS measurement community.
