The solution to the problem of optical or electromagnetic-wave scattering from perfectly conducting rough surfaces modeled by a multiscale fractal function is generalized to the case of relative uniform translating motion with respect to the observer. The presence of motion can be treated by the relativistic frame hopping method by means of plane-wave simplification techniques, since the solution relevant to the static case is expressed in terms of a generalized expansion of Floquet modes.
