Main Article Content

Decreasing the Radar Cross Section (RCS) is investigated in electromagnetic materials, i.e. double-positive (DPS) , double-negative (DNG) , epsilon-negative (ENG) and mu-negative (MNG) materials. The interesting properties of these materials lead to a great flexibility in manufacturing structures with unusual electromagnetic characteristics. The valid conditions for achieving the transparency and gaining resonance for an electrically small cylinder are established, in this corresponding The effect of incidence direction on RCS inclusive of transparency and resonance conditions is also explored ,through computer simulations for an electrically small cylinder.
