Radar Reflectors for Precision Measurements

  • V. M. DavydochkinEmail author

We propose a method for the numerical analysis of flat reflectors of electromagnetic waves with the minimum field of interferences. The reflectors are intended for the standard checking installations of radar range finders. The parameters of numerous reflectors with interference fields whose levels vary within the range –(18–33) dB are presented.
