A technique for synthesizing a resistive taper that generates desired bistatic scattering and backscattering patterns from a strip is outlined. Antenna synthesis techniques relate the scattered field to the induced surface current density. Physical optics approximations then relate the induced current to the resistivity. The taper is checked by computing the surface current density and scattered fields of the tapered resistive strip using the integral equation formulation and comparing with the physical optics results.
