Galaxy is a low-frequency radar cross section (RCS) and signature prediction code
that uses the Body of Revolution Method of Moments (MoM-BOR) technique to treat rotationally
symmetric, three-dimensional objects. The approach in Galaxy makes practical
wide-bandwidth simulations of many realistic scattering shapes such as reentry vehicles.
Reentry vehicles, such as the triconic with cavity show in a partial outline above, can be simulated over multiple frequencies to obtain wideband static patterns, incorporating all effects such as traveling and creeping waves, multiple diffractions, and delayed returns from cavities, illustrated below for this RV at C-Band.
