A little known unidirectionally conducting canonical object is introduced, which satisfies the requirements for use as a cross-polarized bistatic calibration device, including a signature with the desirable property of being able to be characterized analytically. Bistatic measurements are essential to understanding the stealth characteristics of military targets, and since no similar cross-polarization calibration target is available, the proposed device shows potential for becoming a new radar cross section (RCS) measurement standard.
