The patch shape influence on the radar cross section (RCS) of a cylindrical microstrip antenna (CMA) is discussed. The RCS of the CMA is evaluated from a plane wave scattering problem solution to a cylindrical microstrip antenna. The method of moments is employed in the spectral domain using sub-domain basis functions. It is shown that the patch shape has a pronounced effect such that new resonance modes appear at frequencies substantially shifted towards the low-frequency end compared to a cylindrical rectangular patch.
