Abstract

The concept of the quantum radar cross section (QRCS) has generated interest due to its promising feature of enhanced side lobe target visibility in comparison to the classical radar cross section. Researchers have simulated the QRCS for very limited geometries and even developed approximations to reduce the computational complexity of the simulations. This paper develops an alternate theoretical framework for calculating the QRCS. This new framework yields an alternative form of the QRCS expression in terms of Fourier transforms. This formulation is much easier to work with mathematically and allows one to derive analytical solutions for various geometries, which provides an explanation for the aforementioned sidelobe advantage. We also verify the resulting equations by comparing with numerical simulations, as well as provide an error analysis of these simulations to ensure the accuracy of the results. Comparison of our simulation results with the analytical solutions reveal that they agree with one another extremely well.
