Title:
Ray Tracing for Simulating Reflection Phenomena in SAR Images 
Abstract:
This paper presents an approach for using backward ray tracing for simulating radar reflectivity maps. After explaining the simulation concept which consists of three parts - modeling, sampling and image generation - two applications are presented for showing the performance of the simulator. At first reflection contributions like single or multiple bounce are simulated for a modeled building and compared to a real TerraSAR-X image. It shows how the capability of separating different bounce leve...    »
