AB - Aerospace structures can be approximately modeled as a combination of canonical structures such as cylinder, cone and ellipsoid. Thus the RCS estimation of such canonical structures is of prime interest. Furthermore metamaterials possess peculiar electromagnetic properties which can be useful in modifying the RCS of structures. This paper is aimed at calculating the RCS of an infinitely long PEC circular cylinder coated with one or two layers of metamaterial. The incident and scattered fields of coated cylinder are expressed in terms of series summation of Bessel and Hankel functions. The unknown coefficients of summation are obtained by applying appropriate boundary conditions. The computations are carried out for both principal polarizations. The computed results are validated against the numerical-based method of moments. Further, the variation of RCS of the metamaterial coated PEC cylinder with material parameters, frequency, aspect angle and polarization is analyzed.
