Radar Cross Section (RCS) is measurement whose units are surface area, typically recorded in square meters. Since RCS is a quantity that can change several orders of magnitude as the angle between the radar and the target varies, usually the base 10 logarithm of the linear RCS is used to show the RCS in plots. It is routine to see the RCS represented this way in dBsm, or decibel square meters.
