We prove optimal stability estimates for the determination of a finite number of sound-soft polyhedral scatterers in R^3 by a single far-field measurement. The admissible multiple polyhedral scatterers satisfy minimal a priori assumptions of Lipschitz type and may include at the same time obstacles, screens and even more complicated scatterers. We characterize any multiple polyhedral scatterer by a size parameter h which is related to the minimal size of the cells of its boundary. In a first step we show that, provided the error epsilon on the far-field measurement is small enough with respect to h, then the corresponding error, in the Hausdorff distance, on the multiple polyhedral scatterer can be controlled by an explicit function of epsilon which approaches zero, as epsilon goes to 0, in an essentially optimal, although logarithmic, way. Then, we show how to improve this stability estimate, provided we restrict our attention to multiple polyhedral obstacles and epsilon is even smaller with respect to h. In this case we obtain an explicit estimate essentially of Hoelder type.
