Abstract
The S*R FCS Advanced RF Tag design utilizes covert, passive RF Tags, operating in conjunction with surveillance, and tactical based SAR/GMTI radars, to meet joint service and Coalition ID requirements and other operational needs. The flight tested, proven tag employs S*R's patented van Atta array repeater, the electronic equivalent to a corner reflector, but capable of modulating the RCS at high (KHz) frequencies. By operating at X-Band or other suitable RF frequencies, the RF Tag offers the additional capability of adverse weather penetration, covertness, and identification i.e. the equivalent to an electronic RF "barcode".
