Abstract
It has been noticed that plasma with different characteristics could provide distinct response to electromagnetic waves, i.e. could reflect or absorb them. The Flight Mechanics Group at DRDC Valcartier is leading a Technology Investment Fund (TIF 11az) research project aiming to improve understanding on the interactions between plasma and electromagnetic waves. Plasma actuators are receiving significant research attention in aerodynamic applications. Associated with these plasmas is the potential to change a vehicle’s radar cross section (RCS). This study examined the open literature in order to identify the plasma parameters affecting RCS as well as investigating published experimental and numerical modeling methods to evaluate the plasma effect. Recommendations for future work are presented including the use of static magnetic fields to modify the plasma.
