A method is provided for reconstruction of the shape of perfectly conducting objects in a homogeneous space starting from knowledge of the scattered far field under the incidence of TE-polarized plane waves. The Kirchhoff model of scattering permits linearization of the inverse problem, which is further simplified by adopting an asymptotic approximation. Thus the problem is tackled with an approach based on singular-value decomposition already developed for the TM case.
