Paper Abstract

The technology of wide-band high resolution is very important to the space measuring radar because it is the foundation to the realization of imaging and identification to the space targets. In this paper, we design a modeling and simulating software to analyze wide-band radar echo of satellite in orbit. In the software, we are able to accurately predict orbital satellite motion[1] of two-body problem, and then we can get the wide-band radar echo of satellite. The intention of this simulation was to create a graphical user interface GUI, which consists of menus, push buttons, text boxes, plots and other interface devices that allow the GUI user to immediately see the impact of various changes. The analysis includes orbit determination and prediction position/velocity, radar cross section (RCS) and ISAR image of satellite in orbit.
