Simulation of scattering characteristics of aerial resonant-size objects in the VHF band
A method based on solving the surface integral equations of second kind is proposed for calculating the scattering characteristics of aerial resonant-size objects. The calculation results are presented for a model of the reentry vehicle of the LGM–30G Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile and the AGM86C cruise missile.
