Abstract
The rigorous evaluation of the NRCS (Normalized Radar Cross Section) of an object above a one-dimensional sea surface (2D case) needs to numerically solve a set of discretized integral equations involving a large number of unknowns. Thus, the direct solution of the impedance matrix equation via LU decomposition becomes the most expensive step in the MoM (Method of Moments) procedure. So, in order to minimize the computation cost, the iterative domain decomposition method called EPILE (Extended Propagation-Inside-Layer Expansion) was used and then was combined with the FBSA (Forward-Backward with Spectral Acceleration) to calculate the local interactions on the rough sea surface. The resulting fast method is called EPILE+FBSA. In this paper, we take advantage of the rank-deficient nature of the coupling matrices, corresponding to the object-surface interactions, to further reduce the complexity of the method by using the ACA (Adaptive Cross Approximation). Thus, the coupling matrices are strongly compressed without a loss of accuracy and the memory requirement is then strongly reduced. For a cylinder above a rough sea surface, the results show the efficiency of the accelerated EPILE+FBSA+ACA method.
