Abstract:

For convex non-depolarizing bodies, the monostatic-bistatic approximation is exact to first order terms in the bistatic angle. The second order error effect causes widening of the lobe structure with increasing bistatic angle. For depolarizing bodies, the error is again second order in the bistatic angle provided that the depolarizing edges have parallel orientation. Consequently, the theorem can be extended to convex bodies of revolution.
