AUTOMOBILE RADAR SIGNATURE STUDIES

Continuous wave (CW) scattering measurements have been made in a manner which is consistent with automobile radar operation. Various aspects of simple targets and of an automobile were measured in a microwave anechoic chamber. Both horizontal and vertical linear polarizations were transmitted and their co-linear and cross polarizations received. These data have been used to confirm the existence of and to understand certain scattering mechanisms. They have also been subjected to analyses in order to determine the ability to discriminate among the various simple targets. It is demonstrated that even a simple analytical method shows discrimination capability among the targets tested. /GMRL/
