RCS - Radar Cross Section

Radar Cross Section is an essential parameter in radar range calculation. Unlike most other parameters in the radar range equation, RCS is a facettious item usually connected with a high degree of uncertainty regarding its boundary conditions. The following documents shall contribute to a better understanding of RCS and, hence, to reasonable range calculation results.
