IDS, in collaboration with the Fincantieri NexTech Group, is excited to announce our participation in the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and ITNC-USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting. This prestigious event will be held at the “Fortezza da Basso” Convention Center in Florence, Italy, from July 14 to 19, 2024.
Hosted by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society – IEEE AP-S, the Italian National Committee – ITNC, and the US National Committee – USNC of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), this symposium promises to be an enlightening and informative experience. IDS is thrilled to invite you to join us on July 19th for the presentation of our paper: “Scattering Effects of Surface Discontinuities by Simulated Diagnostic Radar Images.” This article is authored by Stefano Sensani, Giacomo de Mauro, Mirko Bercigli, Antonio Guidoni, Alessandro Mori, and Mauro Bandinelli.

In this presentation, our colleagues will delve into the advancements in high-resolution radar imaging, which has proven to be an invaluable diagnostic tool in the meticulous design of low Radar Cross-Section – RCS components. This technology is extensively employed to identify and analyze the various scattering features that contribute to an object’s total RCS, ultimately aiding in optimizing its radar signature.
The IDS paper begins by validating the radar image simulation process using a simple thin metal rod, demonstrating the focalization of multiple diffractions and traveling wave contributions. We then examine a more complex scenario involving a discontinuity, such as a gap between two adjacent surface panels. The study showcases simulated ISAR images, highlighting gap diffraction and the mitigation effects achieved through radar-absorbing treatments.

Join us to explore these innovative findings and engage in discussions that push the boundaries of radar imaging technology. We look forward to seeing you!
