Abstract:

Local scattering parts on a smooth convex object elements make the most important contribution to reflected signal energy. So these surface parts of complex shape objects are coated by radio-absorbing materials RM in camouflage purpose. As a rule, the radio-absorbing coating RC has the sizeable weight and the cost. In this case the problem of optimal using of RM on the object surface has been occurred. The optimal coating method for the reduction of radar cross-section RCS has been obtained for a certain illumination and reception directions in limitation conditions for a quantity of the RC using. Optimal coating has been realized due to decision of some integer linear programming problem. Using this method we have had RCS numerical results for reductive aircraft model partly coated by RM.
