In order to determine the validity and accuracy of Radar Cross Section RCS predictions for thin wires, the predictions of the closed-form expressions developed by Chu, Tai, Van Vleck, et al., and Ufimtsev have been compared with carefully measured backscattered RCS vs angle of incidence for various length thin, long, cylindrical conductors. Further, the prediction of an open-form numerical analysis based on the Source Distribution Technique and programmed by M. B. Associates as the BRACT computer program was also compared with the experimental data.
