## Topics for a statistical description of radar cross sectionTreats radar cross section (RCS), with special emphasis on statistical aspects and their applications. Focus is on RCS estimation for complex targets, with full discussion of detection theory and comparison of RCS data. Opening chapters provide fundamentals, notation, definitions, and formulas. Middle chapters address scattering and diffraction of electromagnetic waves and practical RCS analyses and applications. Closing chapters discuss the role of constitutive parameters in RCS. |
