Description

A computer simulation of SAR data is discussed. A method is outlined for simulating a point target that models SAR data under moderate motion of the radar platform and a wide range of incidence angles. A simple Interferometric SAR simulator is also discussed. The usefulness of the simulations is in the ability to test new algorithms in a controlled environment. The simulator allows for several degrees of freedom in the complexity of the simulation.
