Abstract:

This is a users manual for producing simulated radar images SRIM of computer-modeled objects. It uses a solid modeler to build a target and estimates the electromagnetic scattering of the radar wave using ray-tracing and physical optics. The Simulated Radar Image SRIM software is a prototype system consisting of several programs set up to run as a production system. This document describes how the SRIM programs are set up and run. The intent is to provide the user with the information to produce simulated radar images from a target description such as engineering drawings. All of the SRIM software is written in VAX FORTRAN 77. The DEC extensions to FORTRAN have been avoided to aid transportability. SRIM is currently running on a VAX780 under VMS 4.x and uses a 300 Mb disk. A magnetic tape can be used instead of the disk but execution speed will be reduced. Section 3 describes the individual programs more fully. The inputs and outputs for each program are given, especially the user inputs. Section 4 contains information needed to quantitatively define the SRIM system user inputs. The emphasis is on how the values for the user inputs are determined. The section contains an example showing how the user inputs are determined for a specific SRIM simulation. kr
