For performance improving of C-band radar altimeter used in a missile system, Ku-band radar altimeter is developed. To utilize the time delay devices which are used in testing C-band radar altimeter, we proposed C-band and Ku-band frequency conversion method and implemented it as a part of missile system test equipment. In this paper we present design contents, development results and test application results of radar altimeter test equipments.
