Abstract:

This report documents and describes the procedure in digitally simulating two radar images of the Pisgah Crater test site one of which is of an essentially flat area while the other has a significant amount of relief. The type of information needed for simulation and the method of actual construction of the images are presented. Simulated images both with and without fading are included. For simulating the region with significant relief, a method for establishing shadow regions is given. Comparisons are made between the real radar image of the area and the simulated images. It is believed that the major source of error in simulation lies in the ground truth information, especially height and slope. Documentation of computer programs utilized is provided.
