A method is presented for reconstructing the surface profile of a perfectly conducting rough surface boundary from the measurements of the scattered far-field. The proposed inversion algorithm is based on the use of the Kirchhoff approximation and in order to determine the surface profile, the Fletcher-Powell optimization procedure is applied. A number of numerical results illustrating the method are presented.
