Description

RCS impulse holography is a new concept for obtaining near-field, three-dimensional RCS measurements and low-observable diagnostic image reconstructions. The high-resolution images (holographic reconstruction) maps the target’s scattering areas and identifies the “hot spots” at each frequency (i.e., in the pulse bandwidth) which dominate the far-field return to the radar. The combination of these two salient features (i.e., predictive and diagnostic) provides an extremely attractive, economic near-field measurement technique that can be utilized by the military.
