MetadataShow full item record
A constant amplitude Doppler producing radar reflector for simulating a moving target. A plurality of dihedral reflectors having equal radar cross sections are rotated axially at equal rotational speeds. The dihedral reflectors are separated laterally and in the direction towards the illuminating radar by a distance which keeps the radar returns from the two reflectors in phase quadrature. With the radar cross sections of the reflectors being equal, the return signals to a linearly polarized radar maintains constant amplitude as the dihedral reflectors rotate.
