In this study, monostatic Radar Cross Section (RCS) of targets which are modeled with different number of triangular patches were analyzed by using Shooting and Bouncing Ray (SBR) method based on geometric optics which is one of the high frequency techniques. Numerical results obtained by SBR method are compared with Physical Optics (PO) results. This study showed that monostatic RCS value is not changed when smooth-surface targets are modeled with different number of triangular patches but computation time increased with increasing the number of triangular patch.
