N2 - Solving electromagnetic scattering problems involving non-uniformly moving objects requires an approximate but consistent extension of Einstein's Special Relativity theory, which originally is valid for constant velocities only. For moderately varying velocities a quasi Lorentz transformation is presented. The conditions for form-invariance of the Maxwell equations, the so-called "principle of relativity", are shown to hold for a broad class of motional modes and time scales. An example of scattering by an harmonically oscillating mirror is given elsewhere.
