Abstract:

This technical report compares the radar signatures of a human body as computed by the Finite Difference Time Domain FDTD and Xpatch modeling techniques. Our main purpose is to validate the Xpatch approximate models with an exact electromagnetic solver FDTD, We achieve this by comparing the radar cross section RCS, range profiles and synthetic aperture radar SAR images of the human body, as computed by the two methods. This work is important in validating Xpatch as an accurate tool for modeling general STTW radar scenarios, where a major goal consists in detecting and identifying humans enclosed in building structures.
