This experiment is about the study of Radar Cross Section (RCS) using pulse wave and continuous wave radar on stationary and moving target. A Lab-Volt Radar Training System Set Model 8096 from Canada was used to carry out this study. Radar waves used were pulse wave and Doppler wave radar. A spherical shaped metal is used as the object. The distance where the object is placed, is varied between the ranges 0cm to 50cm on the target positioning table. The radar antenna used in a non rotational antenna meaning that only the object's position on the target positioning table can be moved. The object is assumed to move at a constant speed between 20. 0ms�¹ to 26.67ms�¹ across the target positioning table at a fixed frequency of 9.40GHz of the radar transmitter. The range of which the object is placed or move is detected by the radar antenna, as long as it is in the range of 0 to 100cm. The wave is projected through the oscilloscope where the peak to peak voltage (Vpp) and the relative power (dB) is calculated. The value of the relative power (dB) is directly proportional to the value of the radar cross section of an object. The relative power (dB) value decreases inversely with the increase in distance range. The change in distance does not have a vast and distinctive significance difference for a moving and stationary object between the range 0cm to 50cm using the pulse and Doppler wave.
