A technique for calculating the backscattering of ultrashort pulses of plane waves by an ideally conducting cylinder is described on the basis of the spectral representation. The Rayleigh solution in the Bessel function series representation is used to determine the scattering spectral components. The Gabor impulse reflection is investigated. A method for remote determination of the cylinder diameter from the shift of scattered field amplitude peaks is described.
