The improved high-frequency method for solving the bistatic scattering from electrically large conductive targets is presented in this paper. Since the previous physical optical methods overlooked the current impact of shadow zone and led to the increasing problems of the large angle bistatic calculation, the improved method is deduced by introducing the current marching technique into the conventional physical optical method. Combined with the graphicalelectromagnetic computing method that

The numerical results show that this method is efficient and accurate. Corresponding author: X. F. Li (afeng4819@163.com).
