  • A broadband technique to reduce the radar cross section (RCS) of complex targets is presented. In such targets, multiple-bounce mechanism dominates their RCS. The proposed technique demonstrates that by treating the multiple-bounce mechanism as a cascaded phenomenon, the problem then simplifies to identifying and implementing a set of orthogonal functions. Robust guidelines for avoiding grating lobes are provided using array theory. The 90° dihedral corner is used to verify the proposed… CONTINUE READING
