Abstract: A process for evaluating the radar pattern of a phased array antenna subsystem by utilizing transmissions from a global positioning satellite. This process utilizes a delayed radar target on a moving platform, a remote differential global positioning receiver on the moving platform, a fixed global positioning receiver on the phased array antenna, and a communication data link between the remote global positioning receiver and the fixed global positioning receiver.
