Abstract:

The report presents a logical design of a natural terrain radar land mass simulator, techniques for incorporating radar effects, and cultural terrain into the simulator, and relationship between simulator design and specific operational requirements. The results of this work indicate that the techniques developed are feasible from an engineering standpoint but are impractical due to cost considerations. A firmer understanding of the information content of maps and digital representation techniques must be established to compress the data to a degree whereby an economically feasible device can be developed.
