Abstract

Measurements of radar backscatter from an artificial tree were made in the laboratory at 6 and 10 GHz at horizontal incidence. The system has resolution cylinder 18 cm in diameter and 11 cm long. The tree itself was only 30.5 cm high so about half the tree was within the beam. The scattering was azimuthally uniform. Tilted polarizations gave results favoring an angle corresponding with that of the branches. Measurements were made with and without leaves.
