Specific RCS for Describing the Scattering Characteristic of Complex Shape Objects

Abstract
Nowadays it is important to create military and civilian vehicles which would be invisible to radar (or homing precision weapons). Such a task requires using high amount of radio-absorbing materials and high cost of finished samples of re-engineering. So it is very useful to have some methods for mathematical modeling of electromagnetic waves scattering on the object in order to take into account various techniques to reduce the object visibility at the stage of design. After the mathematical modeling for each case (specified wavelength, polarization, background surface, etc.), we obtain the angular RCS dependence. We obtain such dependencies for two different models. Based on the comparison of these two dependencies for different objects, it is very difficult to determine which one of the objects is more detectable. This paper presents a new calculation method which allows characterizing the scattering properties of each object only with a few numbers: specific RCS (same as normalized RCS) and RCS dispersion. The presented method can be simply used to assess the visibility of the objects placed on different background surfaces.
