Radar Cross Section Reduction Lab

Radar Cross Section Reduction Lab

Course Description

This course can only be purchased with DEF 2503P: Radar Cross Section Reduction.

Gain hands-on experience with materials characterization and the application of these materials to a test body during the labs. This optional session draws on the theoretical information the students have learned all week and gives them a chance to apply this information.

During the morning session, students will rotate through a materials metrology, a computational electromagnetics laboratory, and the compact range. In the afternoon session, students work in teams to treat a test object to minimize its RCS.
