Paper Abstract

In this paper two RCS prediction codes were investigated with respect to their applicability at millimeterwave radar bands. Two classes of land-targets, anti-tank mines and a jeep, were measured at two frequencies and afterwards the RCS calculations with the facet models of the objects, partly simplified, were done under the same conditions. The paper describes the experimental set-up and the simulation methods used. Furthermore the output of the simulations is compared with the experimental results. The importance of the comparison for simulations at millimeter-wavelengths is discussed.
