Paper Abstract

Modeling of the electromagnetic (EM) scattering and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of a ship over sea surface is a great challenge due to the extremely complicated scattering mechanisms between the complex target and the dynamically variable sea surface. In this work, we propose an approximate but practical technique for high-frequency EM scattering prediction and SAR image modeling of ships over sea surface, where major scattering mechanisms from both the ship's hardbody and the multipath interaction between the ship and the sea surface are considered. Computational examples for radar cross section (RCS) and SAR images are presented, demonstrating the validity and usefulness of the current technique.
