Abstract
In this paper, angular glint characteristics of a two-dimension (2-D) perfect electric conductor (PEC) target above a PEC rough surface are investigated. The induced surface currents on the target and on the rough surface are obtained by employing the method of moments com-bining UV matrix decomposition technique (MOM-UV). Based on electromagnetic (EM) theory and the phase-front distortion concept of angular glint, the formulae of angular glint for 2-D target are proposed, and angular glint is calculated precisely by using phase gradient method (PGM). The analysis of the result is implemented by means of numerical extraction of the coupling currents and relationship between the phase front and angular glint, thus revealing the effects of the coupling on the angular glint.
