Abstract : The paper describes the design and use of SIGMA, a computer program for the calculation of radar cross section of a dynamic target on a pulse to pulse basis, using the MK 25 Fire Control Radar. The program is written specifically for use on the Scientific Data Systems 9300 computer in FORTRAN IV, but is readily adapted to other data processing systems. The input data base is composed of magnetic tape recordings of instrumented radar range and signal strength. Outputs include target cross section and range, and mean cross section and range in printed tabular listing, in graphical form, and on digital magnetic tape. (Author)
