Abstract

The scattering of electromagnetic plane wave from an artificial object containing thin long perfectly conducting needles embedded in a homogeneous background material is characterized by parameters like positioning, orientations and lengths of needles. Firstly, models of random errors in positioning and orientation of perfectly conducting needles are proposed. Secondly, their effects upon ensemble averaged RCS is analyzed. It is investigated theoretically that increasing error in positioning and orientation of conducting needles reduces ensemble averaged RCS.
