Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW AND INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES WHICH DETERMINE ELECTROMAGNETIC SCATTERING BEHAVIOR ARE NECESSARY IN ORDER TO ADVANCE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN RADAR CROSS SECTION (RCS) CONTROL. TWO OF THE MORE IMPORTANT ANALYTICAL PROBLEMS REQUIRING SOLUTION IN THIS AREA ARE THE CHARACTERIZATION OF RADAR SCATTERING FROM COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND OPTIMUM APPLICATION OF MATERIAL COATINGS TO METALLIC STRUCTURES. A TAPERED IMPENDANCE BOUNDARY CONDITION ON A STRUCTURE IS REPRESENTATIVE OF APPLYING AN ABSORBING COATING ON A STRUCTURE PROVIDED THE PENETRATION DEPTH OF THE RADIATION INTO THE MATERIAL IS LESS THAN THE MATERIAL THICKNESS. DSA WILL CHARACTERIZE THE RADAR SCATTERING FROM AN EXTENDED PANEL OF UNIDIRECTIONAL COMPOSITE (UDC) MATERIAL AND FOR A CYLINDER OF ARBITRARY CROSS SECTION USING AN INTEGRAL EQUATION FORMULATION -FLOQUET-GALERKIN.
