Paper Abstract

Millimeter wave sensor research over the past years has been directed toward the development of a feature space for targets and background that is disjoint over a broad range of parameters. The results have been mixed at best. The BRL program is directed toward the investigation of the polarization and frequency characteristics of various types of background. The data would be collected so as to provide both systems engineers and systems analysts a useful and general set of millimeter wave background maps for development of performance estimates of current and proposed weapon systems. This paper highlights some of the key features of the instrumentation and measurement parameters which the authors believe to be important in establishing the polarization and frequency characteristics of both benign and hostile terrain backgrounds.
