Abstract

Checkerboard surfaces, combining two different EBG structures, can realize a wide frequency bandwidth for a 10-dB RCS reduction because the scattered fields from checkerboard surfaces are re-directed toward four quadrants. This paper exhibits dual-frequency band checkerboard EBG surfaces with 10-dB RCS reduction bandwidths of 61% and 24% by utilizing two dual-band EBG structures, while the surfaces maintain scattering in four quadrants. Bistatic RCS of dual-band checkerboard surfaces are compared to the RCS of the corresponding PEC surface. Excellent agreement is obtained between measurements and simulations.
