Experimental Determination of the Scattering Cross-section of Ogives and Prolate Spheroids at Microwave Frequencies

Experimental Determination of the Scattering Cross-section of Ogives and Prolate Spheroids at Microwave Frequencies

Date: 1956
Creator: Rhoads, Wayne C.
Description: Because of the great difficulty of obtaining exact numerical values of cross-section, and because of the inherent uncertainties in interpreting and evaluating the approximate methods, accurate experimental cross-section data would be extremely useful to the radar engineer. It was with this purpose in mind that the present long-range research program in microwave scattering was undertaken. Of immediate interest were the scattering properties of the prolate spheroid, the ogive (formed by rotating the minor segment of a circle around the chord), and, for comparison, the long cylinder.
