Electromagnetic scattering by conducting bodies of revolution (BOR) coated with homogeneous chiral media above a lossy half-space is formulated in terms of the Poggio-Miller-Chang-Harrington-Wu surface integral equation combined with combined field integral equation. A field decomposition scheme is utilized to split a chiral media into two equivalent homogeneous media. The spatial domain half-space Green's functions are obtained via the discrete complex image method. Due to the rotational symmetry property of BOR, the method of moment for BOR (BORMoM) is applied to the linear system solved by the multifrontal direct solver. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed method.
