Abstract
A submillimeter radar modeling facility has been developed for the acquisition of data from scale models of tactical targets to determine the scattering of millimeter waves from the corresponding full size vehicles. Advances in submillimeter optically pumped laser technology and minicomputer control and display have been utilized to achieve a versatile radar modeling system in a laboratory. High resolution imaging and radar cross section (RCS) measurements have been made and the necessary calibration techniques have been developed. Evolving submillimeter technology should permit the modeling of frequency-agile radar systems.
