BACKSCATTERING FROM PARTIALLY CONVEX TARGETS IN FREE SPACE WITH H-BEAM WAVE INCIDENCE

By H. El-Ocla

Abstract:
In [9], scattering problems of plane and beam wave incidences were presented. In that study, it was found that the target configuration together with beam width have a major effect on the laser RCS (LRCS). This conclusion was proved for horizontal incident wave polarization (E-polarization) in free space. The polarization of incident waves is one of the key parameters in the scattering problems and in particular in the resonance region where the target has a comparable size with the wave length. In this work, we extend our study and investigate the impact of vertical incident wave polarization (H-polarization) on the LRCS of large size targets and compare it with RCS of targets with plane wave incidence.
