The results are reported from applying radar image simulation to produce simulated reference scenes of winter conditions for a missile guidance usage. A data base was constructed of the Watertown, New York, test site and simulated radar images were generated. The data base was prepared from historical data for an average winter at the test site. Simulated radar images were produced via the point scattering model and an empirical model was used for predicting the electromagnetic reflectance from the ground, its cover, and overlying snow. Copies of the simulated radar images are included. The results reported were obtained for four 4 simulations corresponding to four specific altitudes in the terminal phases of the trajectory of a guided missile, each successively lower. The simulated images have been produced for testing against actual radar data of the same site via the Correlatron. These tests have not been performed as the actual radar data have not yet been obtained. Author
