Radar Cross Section | What is Radar Cross Section?

This page mentions what is radar cross section.It also mentions equation of radar cross section.


This is a measure of magnitude of EM energy which is intercepted by the target and scattered back towards the radar system.


The radar cross section is defined as ratio of reflected power with incident power density. It is also referred by other names such as target cross section anf supply cross section.


It is expressed by the equation as follows:

σ = 4 * π * (Reflected power per unit solid angle/Incident power per unit area)

The unit of radar cross section measurement is m2
