M. Junaid Mughal 2006 Scattering UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011 When a wave impinges on a rough surface, the reflected wave is spread out (diffused) in all directions due to scattering. The dimensions of the objects inducing Scattering are comparable to λ To judge if a surface is smooth or rough (if we will have reflection or scattering) when a wave impinges upon that surface, the Critical Height h c is given by hc = λ / ( 8 sin Өi ) If maximum protuberance hmax < hc : Smooth Surface hmax > hc : Rough Surface The reflected E-Fields for h > hc is given by :

M. Junaid Mughal 2006 Radar Cross Section Model (RCS Model) UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011 The Radar Cross Section (RCS) of a scattering object is defined as the ratio of the power density of the signal scattered in the direction of the receiver to the power density of the radio wave incident upon the scattering object. The bistatic radar equation is used to compute the propagation of a wave travelling in free space that impinges on a distant scattering object and then reradiated in the direction of the receiver. The objects are assumed to be in the Far-Field region (Fraunhofer region) P R (dBm) = P T (dBm) + G T (dBi) + 20 log λ + RCS [dB m 2 ] – 30 log (4 pi) – 20 log d T – 20 log d R

M. Junaid Mughal 2006 Log-Normal Shadowing UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011 Surrounding environment clutter not considered in previous model. Received power can vary at quite a significant value at 2 points having same T-R separation distances. Path Loss (PL) is random and distributed log-normally about the mean distance-dependent value.

38
M. Junaid Mughal 2006 Log-Normal Shadowing UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011 Log-Normal distribution describes the random shadowing effects which occur over a large number of measurement locations which have the same T-R separation distance. This phenomenon is called the log-normal shadowing. Implies that measured signal levels at specific T-R separation have a Gaussian (normal) distribution about the distance-dependent mean.
