Diffuse Scattering in WaveFarer

To augment WaveFarer’s calculations of multipath and target scattering, the diffuse scattering model further increases the fidelity of the simulation by revealing how paths interact with rough surfaces, leading to additional clutter in radar returns. Key effects from diffuse scattering, such as the introduction of additional clutter to the complex impulse response and increased cross-polarization of received signals, can be incorporated into radar scattering simulation results.

The advantages of Remcom’s diffuse scattering solution include:

  • Innovative ray-tracing to capture multipath to and from rough surfaces
  • Full integration across surfaces to handle varying illumination and blockage
  • Scattering of paths in all relevant directions
  • Handling of relative phase, supporting arrays and Doppler post-processing
