Abstract: An improved facet model for the predication of the normalized radar cross section (NRCS) of electrically large rough sea surface was proposed based on the first-order small slope approximation (SSA-1) method, the Bragg scattering mechanism, and the specular scattering mechanism. The proposed method is able to evaluate both the complex reflective function and NRCS of electrically large sea surfaces from as low as ultrahigh frequency band to as high as Ka-band. The main idea is that a tilt sea facet can be regarded as the superposition of a planner facet and the microscopic profile; the latter is assumed to be a set of sinusoidal ripple patches. Thus, the integration kernel in SSA-1 over several small facets can be replaced by a large facet with a short wave modification. The efficiency increases because of the much larger mesh size than SSA. Then, both the backscattering and bistatic scattering NRCS results calculated by the proposed method were compared with those predicated by SSA-1, and all of the results show that the proposed method has the merits of high calculation efficiency as well as calculation accuracy.
