Radar and Measurement Technology

Ground-based Measurement

SPC's truck-mobile radar is capable of manual range and angle tracking to support measurements of dynamic targets. Measurements with the truck-mobile MkIV radar have included radar signatures tests against dynamic helicopters, boats and ships. Static tests include measurements of aircraft, missiles, UAVs, tanks and trucks, as well as Doppler measurements of explosive interceptors and collision fragments. Recent work in this field has included:

Signature Data of Mobile Ground Targets
