Abstract : The instrumentation of a Nike-Ajax radar to perform real-time radar cross section measurements of airborne targets is discussed. Measurements include those based on both radar automatic gain control voltage and radar video pulse peak voltage. Instrumented signals within the radar are conditioned and sent via transmission lines to a CI-5000/SDS-9300 hybrid computer. Computed radar cross section and associated analysis information are returned to a display console in the vicinity of the radar. (Author)
