Abstract

Detection and classification of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or unmanned aerial systems (UASs) requires an understanding of their characteristics in various regimes. Two relevant UAS characteristics are measured for two consumer-grade UASs: radar cross-section (RCS) and micro-Doppler profile. RCS is measured as a function of frequency, angle, and orientation. Electromagnetic and acoustic micro-Doppler characteristics of the UASs' moving blades are also measured.
