Electromagnetic and Structural Considerations in Target Support Design
Authors: Marvin L. Wolfenbarger, Pedro E. Amador
This paper will address low RCS target mounting systems. Structural and electromagnetic aspects will be considered. The 4:1 vs the 7:1 ratio ogival shell pylons will be evaluated with consideration given to structural integrity, electromagnetic scattering, and positioner size. Measured and analytic data will be used in these evaluations.
