Abstract : The report describes an experimental equipment and procedure based on conventional methods in a form well-suited for laboratory measurements without expensive specialized components of the phase as well as amplitude of backscattered fields of smaller, resonant-region models on simulated free-space scattering ranges. Practical details that affect the ease of measurement and accuracy are emphasized. Simple methods of probing the incident fields over the model space are discussed, and sample results are presented.
