The high frequency hybrid technique based on an iterative Physical Optics (PO) and the method of equivalent current (MEC) approach is developed for predicting range resolution of the Radar Cross Section (RCS) in the spatial domain. We introduce the hybrid high frequency method to simulate range resolution of the extremely large target in the near zone. This paper applies this method to simulate the range resolution of the two 1 m×1 m plates and the ship. The study improves the spced of simulating the range resolution of the extremely large target and is prepared for the application of the extrapolation and interpolation in the spatial domain.
