Abstract : This handbook contains information of interest to readers of signature data reports prepared by RCA Signature Processing at the Air Force Eastern Test Range. The information includes descriptions of the ARIS radar systems, the reduction procedures, and the related mathematical routines as referenced in the radar signature data reports. As new chapters are prepared they will be made available by revision. The preliminary report on work in progress was originally distributed to provide prompt dissemination of information. The conclusions and recommendations should therefore be considered as tentative and no implementing action should be undertaken based solely on the report. (Author)
