# rcs

Calculate and plot monostatic and bistatic radar cross section (RCS) of platform, antenna, or array

*Since R2019b*

## Syntax

## Description

`rcs(`

plots the monostatic RCS of the platform, antenna, or array over a specified frequency. To
learn more about monostatic and bistatic RCS, see What Is RCS?.`object`

,`frequency`

)

`rcs(___,`

plots the
RCS with additional properties specified using one or more Name-Value Arguments. To plot a bistatic
RCS, specify the TransmitAngle name-value argument
as a 2-by-1 matrix with non-zero values.`Name=Value`

)

`[`

returns the RCS value and
corresponding azimuth and elevation angles using additional properties specified by one or
more name-value arguments. To calculate a bistatic RCS, specify the TransmitAngle name-value argument
as a 2-by-1 matrix. with non-zero values.`rcsval`

,`azimuth`

,`elevation`

= rcs(___,`Name=Value`
