Abstract: NTIA and member agencies of the Interdepartment Radio Advisory Committee (IRAC) have long recognized the need for a set of measurement procedures to augment the Radar Spectrum Engineering Criteria (RSEC). In light of this, a Working Party was formed under the auspices of the Technical Subcommittee Standards Working Group of the Technical Subcommittee, TSC, a subcommittee of the IRAC, for the purpose of developing such a set of measurement procedures. This report presents one or more test procedure(s) for each of the equipment parameters covered by the RSEC that will yield adequate measured data for checking against the RSEC. The included procedures and this report were approved by the IRAC.

Keywords: antenna; measurement procedures; radar spectrum; engineering criteria; receiver; RSEC; transmitter
