Paper Abstract

A simulation model for testing feature matching and target extraction operations of low altitude radar and laser targeting systems has been developed which operates on a PC. The model includes modules for creating topographic maps with selected roughness and detail and translating the map data into angle and range channel data of the sensor of the targeting system. System modules allow the representation of noise in the data channels of the sensor system. Other modules apply feature and edge extraction algorithms to the simulated channel data. A second system channel is present which can represent a reference channel of external map data for correlation processing or consecutive estimates of the position of the sensor platform.
