Paper Abstract

Recent interest in millimeter-wave imaging systems has focused attention on some of the problems associated with the forward-looking mode of operation. In this article, brightness temperatures of various material surfaces have been computed to illustrate the problem of contrast reversal at low grazing angles. When detection conditions are known, contrast reversal angles can be predicted using surface and weather modeling.
