In the radar cross section (RCS) prediction of complex target, the intensive computational burden occurs while calculating the multiple scattering effect. In order to overcome the large computing, we present the program executing on graphics processing units (GPUs). In this paper, we analyze the scattering properties of the satellite, on which the antennas are described as cubes and columns, by employing the GPU-based combinational method of geometrical optics (GO) and physical optics (PO) together with the kd-tree technique. Furthermore, due to this distinctive treatment, the improved method yields a superior performance at high frequency. Some examples will be displayed in the following text. The agreement of the results yielded in this paper with the experimental and other exact results demonstrates the accuracy and efficiency of this useful technique.
