To predict the three-dimensional radar cross section (RCS) pattern of an arbitrary shaped perfectly electric conductor objects in both a broad frequency band and angular domains simultaneously, the method of moments (MoM) combined with the Chebyshev polynomial approximation is presented. The induced current is expanded by a bivariate Chebyshev series. Using this function, the induced current can be obtained at any frequency and angle within the desired frequency band and angular domains.

Numerical results show that the proposed method is found to be superior in terms of the CPU time to obtain the three-dimensional RCS pattern compared with the direct solution by MoM repeating the calculations at each frequency and angle. Good agreement between the presented method and the direct MoM is observed. Corresponding author: J. Ling (dywc 79@126.com).
