Abstract
In this work, a second-order phase approximation is introduced to provide an improved analytical model of the signal received in forward scatter radar systems. A typical configuration with a rectangular metallic object illuminated while crossing the baseline, in far- or near-field conditions, is considered. An improved second-order model is compared with a simplified one already proposed by the authors and based on a paraxial approximation. A phase error analysis is carried out to investigate benefits and limitations of the second-order modeling. The results are validated by developing full-wave numerical simulations implementing the relevant scattering problem on a commercial tool.
