    Considers an active array antenna consisting of open ended waveguide elements, fed individually by active transmit/receive modules. Such an array may be required to operate in environments where other radars are attempting to locate it. These other radars could be aboard hostile ships or homing missiles. The way in which the active array scatters incident waves (its radar cross section) is therefo... View full abstract»

    Describes one of the major activities using Roke Manor's anechoic chamber RCS measurement facility. This is a component of Roke Manor's activity in the measurement and prediction of radar signature and stealth characteristics. In particular, a study of the RCS of antennas is described-prompted initially by general interest, and by specific concerns, regarding the effects of mounting antennas on a ... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. Except in special circumstances, calculation of the radar cross-section (RCS) of scattering objects relies on the numerical solution of integral equations through a suitable approach, such as the method of moments. However, if the integral equations for the scattering of the electromagnetic radiation can be formulated in terms of a variational principle the effects of dist... View full abstract»

    Considerable interest has been given to the reduction of the radar cross-section of military platforms. Careful design of the platform geometry and the judicious use of radar absorbent materials has resulted in significant reduction of the RCS response. As a result, attention has been given to the characterisation of the onboard sensors in order that they do not become the predominant source of re... View full abstract»

    Text fixtures are commonly used to measure the radar cross-section (RCS) of flush-mounted antennas. These test fixtures are typically designed to provide a clutter-free region in which the antenna can be mounted. In addition, the test fixture provides an electromagnetic environment for the antenna which is similar to that found in the final application. Proper design of these test fixtures must ta...

  • Microwave imaging of antenna RCS sources

    Microwave metrology of antennas is widely established for commissioning, quality assurance and diagnosis. Conventional schemes utilise the antenna as an active device in either transmit or receive mode. In a new approach to imaging structure the authors have studied the antenna as a passive scatterer from the point of view of its RCS. In this mode, the antenna response to an incident wavefront is ... View full abstract»

  • Computation of the RCS of reflector antennas by field correlation

    Describes a method of calculating the radar cross-section of single or multiple reflector antennas by means of the `field correlation theorem' of Wood (1980). The method is based on the physical optics approximation, and enables both direct and `indirect' scattering (i.e. scattering by an object seen in a reflector) to be calculated as a surface integral over the scatterer. A similar correlation i... View full abstract»

    A frequency selective surface (FSS) comprising a square grid and a hexagonal array of discs is proposed as a means of reducing the radar cross section (RCS) of a radar bay over a wide (2 GHz to 14.6 GHz) frequency bandwidth. Results are presented in terms of transmission loss for an `A' -type sandwich radome consisting of 2 FSS layers for normal and non-normal incidence. A single FSS layer on a GR... View full abstract»
