Abstract : Antenna gain pattern measurements were performed at the U.S. Air Force Radar Target Scatter Facility (RAT SCAT), 6585th Test Group, Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, to provide data for the evaluation of scoring and radar cross section augmentation antennas for the BQM-34F supersonic target drone. Wing tip pod located scoring system antennas were measured at ten vehicle roll angles using circular polarization and a frequency of 1775 MHz. Gain pattern data for the antenna system of a prototype BQM-34F active radar cross section augmentation pod were acquired at a frequency of 9130 MHz using both horizontal and vertical polarizations.
