Abstract

Corner reflectors are very interesting radar targets because they provide a large bistatic or monostatic radar cross section over a broad range of observation angles and frequencies. Several researchers in the past have analyzed the scattering properties of dihedral corner reflectors using either GO together with GTD or PO together with PTD. In this analysis, Physical Optics (PO) and Method of Equivalent Currents (MEC) were applied on the square trihedral corner reflector to evaluate its monostatic radar cross section. PO was used for the calculations of first, second, and third reflections from the trihedral plates, whereas MEC was used for the calculation of the first order diffractions from the edges.
