SAR Images of Rooms and Buildings Based on FDTD Computer Models

  title={SAR Images of Rooms and Buildings Based on FDTD Computer Models},
  author={Traian Dogaru and Calvin Le},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
This paper presents synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of rooms and buildings based on numerical simulations, with application to sensing through the wall (STTW) scenarios. We use the finite-difference time-domain modeling technique to compute the radar return from configurations of increasing complexity, where humans and furniture objects are placed in a room. We apply SAR image formation techniques and analyze the images obtained for various wall materials, aspect angles, and radar… CONTINUE READING
