Abstract
Computational methods for electromagnetic scattering prediction have been an invaluable tool to the radar signal exploitation community. Scattering prediction codes can provide simulated data of varied levels of fidelity at a fraction of the cost of measured data. Software based on physical optics theory is presently the tool of choice for generating high-frequency scattering data. Currently available codes have extensive capabilities but are usually restricted in their distribution or application due to government or proprietary concerns and due to platform specific software designs. The Raider Tracer software, described in this paper, is a MATLAB-based scattering prediction code that was developed for open distribution to the broader research community.
