RCS reduction of integrated antenna arrays and radomes with resistive sheets

Gustafsson, Mats LU (2006) IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium, 2006 In IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium p.3479-3482
Abstract
In this paper, it is shown that tapered resistive sheets at the edges of the array can be used to transform the scattering properties of the antenna or the radome to that of a metallic plate and hence reduce the radar cross section. Numerical examples of a bandpass FSS radome are presented to illustrate the results. The RCS reduction is very good for TE polarization but not as efficient for the TM polarization
