Abstract

Radar Cross Section (RCS) reduction is very important factor to increase survivability. This paper used a model of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) will be as a reference and focus on RCS reduction by using shaping methods. Simulation software CST was used to calculate the RCS of aerial targets. Four types of target geometries are simulated to find the final optimal design which will give a less value of RCS compared with the reference geometry over X-Band (8, 9,10,11,12 GHz are used for simulation then average value is drowned).
