Abstract
DRDC Ottawa is in the process of establishing an RF radar characterisation laboratory. The corner stone of this facility is the anechoic chamber with its RF scene generator (RFSG). The RFSG consists of an 8x8 rectangular array of antennas mounted on spherical wall. A feed network has been developed that allows 4 adjacent antennas, making up a rectangular “quad”, to be energized and by varying appropriately the power of each of the 4 antennas a synthetic target can be located anywhere inside that “quad” of antennas. In this paper, an approach using array theory is considered to determine the synthetic target location, by considering the radiating elements as elements in a array and computing the phase of the far-field pattern to determine the correct target location.
