The current interest in high resolution radar for the identification of targets has stimulated interest in the investigation of scattered waveforms that result when a short pulse (i.e., an approximate electromagnetic impulse) illuminates the target. From the resulting pulse response, the response due to other incident waveform shapes can be calculated by a convolution operation. In this paper a technique for measuring the imate electromagnetic impulse) illuminates the target. From the form shapes can be calculated by a convolution operation. In this paper a technique for measuring the electromagnetic pulse response is presented and the results are compared with exact results obtained by solution of the time domain integral equation.
