Abstract:

Specular returns from radar targets contain large power which makes a technique based on the analysis of speculars attractive. Herein, the specular returns from a flat region and from a smooth surface tangent to a plane along a curve, which are the largest returns for reasonably sized bodies, are used to obtain information about the geometry of the target.
