Abstract : An experimental facility for the measurement of laser radar cross sections (LRCS) of aircraft targets is analyzed and the essential operational parameters determined. It is demonstrated that significant data can be acquired with a system including a GaAs or Nd:YAG laser illuminator and a low light level TV. Specifications for subsystems and the data processor are given. (Author)
