Paper Abstract

Applications oflong fiber optic delay lines as a radar test target unit to improve radar testing are discussed. The unit intercepts a small amount ofthe radar's transmitted energy, delays it in a fiber optic delay line, and then feeds it back into the radar as a target return. Both radar system operation and use ofthe test target in end-to-end radar testing and RF unit fault isolation are also described. Keywords: fiber optics, delay lines, radar testing, test target
