Abstract

The goal of this project was to design a calibration system for the Advanced Modular Incoherent Scatter Radar (AMISR), a radar system being designed by SRI International for scientific study of the ionosphere. The calibration system will help the thousands of antennas on the AMISR array work in unison to provide accurate measurements. A model of the radar system was created, a calibration antenna was designed, and software was written to obtain measurements, process the data, and calculate calibration coefficients.
