Abstract:

This paper presents an application of C. E. Baums singularity expansion method SEM and the authors method of asymptotic wave functions to the prediction of pulse mode radar echoes from bounded scatterers. The results presented here are generalizations of corresponding results for sonar echoes. Only a summary of the principal concepts and results is presented here. A complete exposition of the theory is planned for a separate publication. Radar echo structure is analyzed under the following assumptions The radar system transmitter and receiver operates in a stationary homogeneous isotropic unlimited medium, The system is stationary with respect to the medium, The scatterers are bounded perfectly conducting objects, The scatterers are stationary with respect to the medium, and The transmitter and receiver are in the far field of the scattering objects. In addition it is assumed that secondary echoes due to the radar system components are negligible.
