Paper Abstract

Radar return data from airborne jet aircraft were collected to determine the presence of consistent, dominant radar returns of point scatterers on aircraft simulating landing conditions. Radar return data on additional targets of opportunity, such as propeller aircraft and helicopters, were also collected for dominant radar returns. These measurements were performed by integrating two separate X-band radars into one system with the ability to simultaneously track and image aircraft. Selected processed data from both radar systems were analyzed and compared for all three types of aircraft, and the results are presented.
