Innovative Technical Systems has designed many instrumentation systems for radar cross section (RCS) measurements. Some of the designs are based around standard network analyzers for signal processing, while utilizing high PRF short-pulse RF transceivers with gated IF architecture. The modular design approach uses separate transmitter and receiver modules for monostatic or bistatic measurements. Compact module design provides flexibility to mount the transmitters and receivers close to the antennas. Dual-channel designs permit full polarization matrix measurements with either electromechanical or solid-state switches. Modules are available in various bandwidths that extend from 100 MHz to over 100 GHz.
The Gated IF RCS Controller provides Ethernet connectivity and programmability of all system timing and control parameters. Window-based GUI and SCPI compatibility provide the option for stand-alone or custom software control.
