New Benchmark Radar Targets for Scattering Analysis and Electromagnetic Software Validation
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 88, 39-52, 2008
Abstract
A validation process, in which simulations and measurements are compared, is necessary to have confidence in the results obtained by numerical methods that solve scattering problems. This paper presents Radar Cross Section (RCS) measurements of new targets suitable for electromagnetic software comparison and validation. These measurements can be used as an RCS reference data for testing existing and future codes, as well as for the analysis of the scattering mechanisms.
