Abstract : A program under which selected radar cross section measurement ranges were evaluated is described. Some details are given on the test models involved and on the test procedures used. Test results are summarized and the ranges are assigned ratings according to their performance in an evaluation that includes many points of comparison. Problem areas in radar cross section measurements are outlined and some recommended solutions are given. Some suggestions for the optimum utilization of radar cross section ranges are given for the benefit of the potential range user. (Author)
