A major objective in the design of an RCS measurement facility is to obtain the greatest possible productivity (overall measurement efficiency) while maintaining the accuracy and sensitivity necessary for low radar cross section targets. This paper will present parameters affecting the total throughput rates of an indoor facility including instrumentation, target handling, and band changes - one of the most time consuming activities in the measurement process. Sensitivity and accuracy issues to be discussed include radar capabilities, feeds and feed clustering, compact range, background levels, and diffraction control.
