The radar cross-sections (RCS) at I-band for two boats were measured as a function of range and aspect angle by illuminating the boats with 9.3 GHz horizontally polarised microwaves using a purpose built coherent pulsed radar. The total RCS of a mean profile was determined for each aspect angle at which RCS profiles were obtained. The mean of these total RCS values, over all aspect angles, was 33 dBm 2 for the water/fuel lighter HMAS Warrigal, and 37 dBm2 for the torpedo recovery boat HMAS Tuna
