Paper Abstract

The performance of an electric field integral equation (EFIE) model is discussed in the context of target detection and classification. This EFIE model, which is a modified version of the Finite Element Radiation model developed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, was used to simulate VHF SAR signatures of ground targets. These SAR signatures were studied and compared with signatures generated from data colelcted by the CARABAS sensor during a 1993 Foliage Penetration Radar experiment. It was found that the EFIE model can provide adequate RCS values and distributions for gound target detection studies. It was also found that the simulated images have reasonable spatial appearance and may be useful for ground target classification studies.
