A SphericalTabularMonostaticCrossSectionScatteringCoefficient which contains complex scattering data produced as output from Ansys HFSS. Ansys HFSS can compute complex cross section for platforms based on their geometry and material characteristics. It exports complex cross section data in the comma separated value (CSV) file format. Each run of HFSS produces results for one signal source polarization. For example, a signal source model with horizontal (H) polarization computes cross section returns for the H-H (H incident and H reflected signal polarization) combination and for V-H (H incident and V reflected signal polarization). V is the vertical polarization. A second run produces data for vertical (V) signal polarization and computes cross section returns for the V-V (V incident and V reflected signal polarization) combination and for H-V (V incident and H reflected signal polarization). This class can accept a single file for the primary polarization or it can combine the exported files to produce a complex scattering cross section matrix for [HH, HV, VH, VV] values. The class reads the column headers in the CSV format files and parses the cross section data frequency value, the polarization scattering metrics element (H-H, V-H, H-V, V-V), phi angle start value (degrees), and phi angle stop value. It then computes the phi angle step value. Phi is the clock angle of the spherical coordinate system and is defined as the azimuth angle from the positive x-axis to the orthogonal projection of the point in the x-y plane. The first column of the CSV file give the theta values. The starting, ending, and step size for the theta values are determined by reading the first column data. Theta is the cone angle of the spherical coordinate system as is defined defined as the zenith angle from the positive z-axis to the point.
