Paper Abstract

A 300-900 MHz ultrawideband (UWB) bistatic test range has been developed in order to analyze echo signals that are based on a transient stimulus. By means of a 2 gigasample/sec digital oscilloscopy allowed a characterization of the true wideband response of materials; two low time-dispersion, quasi-TEM wave-supporting antennas were developed for the bistatic range. Attention is given to the responses of this UWB test range and its antennas to a transient stimulus.
