Important Course Information

This is a classified course.  See Security Requirements section below for details.

Course Description

Review radar echo characteristics and how they may be controlled or modified, focusing on radar cross section reduction principles and basic concepts. Explore aviation radar cross section reduction (RCSR) applications, while touching on radar cross section reduction for other vehicle types. Examine basic techniques of echo control and characteristics of simple shapes. Review tools used in devising radar cross section reduction treatments. Get hands-on experience with materials characterization and applying these materials to a test body.

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers
  • Maintenance crews
  • Managers from industry and the military

How You Will Benefit

  • Place RCSR in the context of the overall platform survivability
  • Understand the fundamentals of high-frequency and low-frequency scattering mechanisms
  • Reduce scattering through platform shaping and material treatments
  • Understand radar cross section measurement and prediction data formats
  • Understand radar cross section reduction in terms of reliability and maintainability through the platform’s life cycle

What Is Covered

  • Radar Fundamentals
  • Electromagnetics and Scattering Basics
  • Radar Cross Section Data Examples and Presentation Formats
  • Surface Wave Mechanisms
  • Design Concepts
  • Radar-Absorbing Material Design
  • Nonspecular RAM
