Abstract : The microprocessor-controlled RF modulator apparatus will provide repeatable, controlled scintillation on a test bench generated low-power RF target waveforms for the purpose of providing a target returns with realistic radar cross section characteristics during testing of the F-16 (or any other) fire control radar. The microprocessor-controlled RF modulator apparatus is utilized in line between an RF target signal generator and the target horn to provide a variety of target situations for testing radar hardware and software. (Patent applications).
