Paper Abstract

We generally desire to relate radar data values to the Radar Cross Section (RCS) of a radar target echo. This is essential to selecting proper gain values in a radar receiver, maintaining dynamic range, and to properly interpret the resulting data and data products. Ultimately, this impacts proper radar design. We offer herein a basic analysis of relevant concepts and calculations to properly calibrate a monostatic radar’s echoes with respect to RCS, and to select appropriate receiver gain values.
