Abstract:

During the 1980s, a new generation of airborne radar systems will become operational. These radars will have a number of new capabilities, but their synthetic apertures will have the greatest impact on simulation of the system since they provide a tenfold increase in resolution. Increased radar landmass simulator resolution is not the only problem implied by this increase. In particular, the sparsity of the DMA data bases presents a challenge in the generation of realistic images. Other new requirements include the simulation of anomalies caused by the Doppler mapping. For the last two years, Link has conducted an RD program to explore the requirements of these new generation radars. This paper reports on the results. Author
