Monostatic Radar Cross Section (RCS) of a three dimensional target is calculated Shooting and Bouncing Ray (SBR) method and Physical Theory of Diffraction-Equivalent Edge Current (PTD-EEC) method. The aim of the presented algorithm is modeling of a real-scale aircraft, so the SBR ray tracing method is combined with PTD-EEC method, thus providing fast intersection routines as well as an accurate calculation of the resulting scattered field strengths. The size and complexity of the object is virtually unlimited. Calculated results with SBR and PTD-EEC methods are compared to Physical Optics Method.
