The toolbox models target reflection and scattering by letting you
specify scattering radar cross sections (RCS) for point-target
reflectors. You can model nonpolarized or polarized radiation. The four
standard Swerling target scattering models are implemented. For the
special case of backscattering radar scenarios, you can simulate an
angle-dependent radar cross-section model. Radar cross-section models
apply to both narrowband and wideband signals. Clutter and jammer models
let you model land and sea reflections and interference sources. You can
also simulate the four standard Swerling backscattering models in sonar
scenarios. For sonar system simulations, you can employ target strength
models and create underwater noise sources. To simulate clutter, you can
use a computer graphical processing unit (GPU) to speed up computations.
In this case, use the
|Billingsley’s intrinsic clutter motion (ICM) model|
|Depression angle of surface target|
|Grazing angle of surface target|
|Gamma value for different terrains|
|Surface clutter radar cross section (RCS)|
Propagation environments have significant effects on the amplitude, phase, and shape of propagating space-time wavefields.
What are polarized fields?
This section introduces the concept of baseband signals and defines the local and global coordinate systems used in the toolbox.
