Abstract : The technical details of all aspects of the radar image simulation are reported. In particular, the activities associated with the Point Scattering Method are discussed. They include: (1) construction of a ground truth data base, i.e., the terrain model which incorporates elevation and dielectric behavior; (2) digitization of the terrain information to build a digital matrix; (3) formation of a backscatter data catalogue; (4) radar device modeling; and (5) problems and solutions inherent in image handling and analysis.
