A brief overview of radar cross section (RCS) measurement techniques is presented. Parameters to be measured include: RCS versus target aspect angle; RCS versus frequency; high-resolution range profiles (one-dimensional images); and high-resolution two-dimensional inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) images. In this review, the measurement radar is limited to ground-based radar systems. Targets include: operational full-scale ships and aircraft; full-scale aircraft mounted on pylons; scale model aircraft mounted on pylons; and scale model ships in water. The review includes compact ranges in anechoic chambers
