Abstract:
A method is presented to calculate the monostatic Radar Cross Section (RCS) of an electrically large perfect conducting cylinder vertically located over a dielectric half-space using Physical Optics (PO) technique. The four-path modal method is used to approximate the influence of the half-space to the scattering mechanism. The comparison between the results calculated by this expression and that by Moment Method (MOM) show that the expression is effective and efficient.
