A new compact range with a state-of-the-art instrumentation system was installed at Lincoln Laboratory and is currently in use. This paper describes the chamber with varied-height absorber, the rolled-edge reflector and instrumentation system. Recently acquired target supports are also described, including a low-RCS, “ogive” tower with a low RCS positioner.
