Either passive calibration targets are expensive and complex to manufacture or their bistatic RCS levels are significantly lower than the monostatic RCS levels of targets such as spheres, dihedraland trihedral corner reflectors. In this paper the performance of an active calibration target with relative high bistatic RCS values is illustrated as a reference target for bistatic RCS measurements. The reference target is simple to manufacture, operates over a wide frequency range and can be… CONTINUE READING
