Abstract

Monostatic RCS measurements of a long bar (at X-band) and of a scale model aircraft (at C- band) were performed under the quasi-plane wave illumination produced by a dual parabolic-cylinder CATR. At Arizona state University's ElectroMagnetic Anechoic Chamber (EMAC) facility, these measurements were repeated under the cylindrical wave illumination produced by a March Microwave Single-Plane Collimating Range (SPCR). The SPRC measurements were corrected using corrected using the `reference target method.' The corrected SPCR measurements are in good agreement with the CATR measurements.
