This section explains how to obtain the scatter map of a sphere applying PO.
Step 1. Create a new project following STEP 1 in the Example1 above.
Step 2.Generate the geometry by selecting Geometry->Solid->Sphere:
Create a sphere
Step 3. The next step is to configure the parameters of the simulation, which are located in the Simulation menu. In the Scatter Map menu introduce the following parameters:

Step 4. Select Bistatic RCS for this example. The wave is theta polarized: Etheta = (1.0,0.0).
Step 5. In the Solver menu select the Physical Optics option.
Step 6. Configure the observation directions. Use the Observation Directions option from the Output menu.
Step 7. Mesh the geometry by selecting Meshing->Create Mesh.
Step 8. Click on Calculate-> Execute.
Step 9. Click on Show Results->Scatter Map.
Step 10. Click on Show Results->Text File Results, to show the Scatter Map data file. Select the step to consider and press the OK button to continue.
