The SBR technique is one of the asymptotic high frequency method, where a dense grid of rays are launched and traced to analyze the scattering properties of the target. In this paper, we propose an accelerated SBR technique using grouping a central ray and 8 surrounding rays around the center ray. First, launched rays are grouped into groups consisting of a central ray and 8 surrounding rays. After the central ray of each group is preferentially traced, 8 surrounding rays are rapidly traced using the information of ray tracing for the central ray.
Simulation result of scattering analysis for CAD models verifies that the proposed method reduces the computational time without decreasing the accuracy.
