Abstract:

The report studies the electromagnetic radar scattering parameters for a complex airborne target at high frequencies. The components of the target are modeled by simple geometrical shapes including ellipsoids, elliptical plates, ogives, and semi-individual component are derived in terms of simple analytical functions. These are subsequently combined, in a consistent manner that takes into consideration the geometrical phase delay and shadowing effect, to yield the total scattered field from the target. Extensive numerical results are presented for the T-33 aircraft and the BQM-34A drone. A comparison of our theoretical computations with experimental data measured by a nanosecond short- pulsed radar reveals reasonably good agreement.
