Two disparate approaches—the finite-difference time-domain (FD-TD) method and the method-of-moments (MOM) surface-patch technique—which permit highly realistic modeling of electromagnetic scattering problems are compared. New results of induced surface currents and radar cross section are presented for an important three-dimensional canonical cube scatterer. It is shown that a high level of agreement for the two modeling approaches is obtained for this scattering example.
