Synthetic Aperture Radar Simulation Study
Final rept. May 1983-Mar 1984
SINGER CO SUNNYVALE CA LINK FLIGHT SIMULATION DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
This study develops the theory of the doppler effect and synthetic aperture radar. The similarity between SAR and a lens is made clear. The characteristics of SAR, such as isodoppler mapping, focused array, range walk and rotation are explored in this report. Algorithms for simulation are provided, SAR anomalies, such as moving targets, footprint, doppler elevation mapping, and multilook are discussed. A chapter is devoted to elevation and planimetric data bases. In addition, sixteen pictures of SAR images from Hughes Aircraft, as well as nineteen emulation SAR images are included in this publication. Additional keywords computer graphics, high resolution radar, F-18 aircraft, FA-18 aircraft.
