Abstract

A novel hierarchical characteristic basis function method (HCBFM) is proposed to calculate monostatic radar cross section based on singular value decomposition characteristic basis function method. In order to reduce the number of incident plane waves and accelerate the generation of characteristic basis functions (CBFs), an improved CBFs construction method is studied in this paper. Firstly, the target is partitioned with hierarchical approach, and at each incident plane wave, the high-level CBFs defined in large blocks are expressed as a linear combination of the previously generated low-level CBFs defined in the corresponding small blocks. Finally, the high-level CBFs in large blocks are orthogonalized by using singular value decomposition at multiple excitations, and a set of linearly independent CBFs can be obtained. Numerical results are given to demonstrate the accuracy and high efficiency of the proposed method.
