In this chapter we have discussed the salient features of indoor RCS ranges. Those features include the absorbing material used to line the interior of the chamber, the chamber geometry, the instrumentation needed to make the measurements, and some of the measurement procedures unique to indoor ranges. The pyramidal and wedge absorbers used to provide an anechoic measurement environment must be chosen with regard to the desired performance at the lowest expected measurement frequency. The lower this frequency, the thicker and more expensive the material will be.
