Abstract:

This report describes a digital computer program which uses the physical optics approximation to calculate the scattering properties of convex perfectly conducting targets with arbitrary shape. The target shape is described in terms of the coordinates of a large number of points on the surface. The program handles bistatic as well as backscattering problems. The input data specify the frequency, the incidence angles and the scattering angles. In the CW case, the output data give the complex elements in the scattering matrix. The program also handles the pulse case where the incident waveform has a finite number of cycles. Graphs are included to illustrate typical results for the following target shapes sphere, spheroids, ogive, and cone.
