In this paper, reduction of monostatic RCS by DBD plasma is measured. For the calibration of monostatic RCS, S-parameters of two metallic plate in different sizes are used and the result is within 0.4 dB error. Metallic plate is put behind DBD plasma generator for measuring reduction of monostatic RCS by DBD plasma. To prevent arc discharge between metallic plate and DBD plasma generator, measurement is progressed spacing the interval between metallic plate and DBD plasma generator. As a result, maximum reduction of monostatic RCS is about 3 dB at 7.4 GHz.
