The radar cross section (RCS) of various geometries with surface resistivity is synthesized using a physical optics approximation. Using the RCS, a set of equations are developed for reconstructing the resistivity across the surface. The reconstructed resistivity is then compared with the original resistivity and the RCS recalculated using the synthesized resistivity to validate the accuracy of the synthesis procedure.
