Abstract: Radar remote sensing deals with the extraction of object information from electromagnetic wave parameters. To fully exploit the potential of acquiring quantitative information requires a detailed description of the microwaves scattering. The research on this topic was mostly centered on far-field analysis which assume an incident plane wave, compute its scattered field and evaluate the Radar Cross Section (RCS). However, under certain practical conditions, the far-field analysis is not valid and a near-field analysis is necessary. In this paper, we present a full analysis of the near field of a wedge structure due to an incident wave field from a line source or a plane wave. The far field pattern, for the case of a line source exciting the structure, is also analyzed. Radar cross section of a rectangular flat plate is examined.
