Abstract : Augmented radar cross section data were acquired from a BQM-34F remotely piloted vehicle (RPV) at the U. S. Air Force Special Weapons Centers' Radar Target Scatter Facility, (RAT SCAT), 6585th Test Group, Holloman AFB, New Mexico. The BQM-34F vehicle was configured to provide comparison and coverage data for two active radar cross section augmentation systems. Data were acquired for three combinations of radar and radar/infrared (IR) augmentation pods using horizontal and vertical measurement system antenna polarizations. A frequency of 9130 MHz was used to perform measurements of the left wing active, right wing active, forward, and aft augmentation system configurations as applicable. This report contains a description of the measurement conditions as well as reproductions of the raw and processed data. (Modified author abstract)
