Abstract:

VEXCEL CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DEVELOP ALGORITHMS AND SOFTWARE WHICH INCORPORATE POLARIZATION DATA INTO TECHNIQUES FOR TERRAIN RECONSTRUCTION USING SHAPE-FROM-SHADING IN MULTIPLE-IMAGE, SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (SAR) QUADPOLE DATA. THIS REPRESENTS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM OF RESOLVING THE AMBIGUITIES INHERENT IN ATTRIBUTING THE CHANGES IN SAR IMAGE SHADING TO EITHER ACTUAL CHANGES IN TERRAIN SLOPE OR TO CHANGES IN SCATTERING CROSS SECTION. THIS SOLUTION WILL COMBINE COMPLEX POLARIZATION DATA WITH SPATIAL DATA TO ACHIEVE HIGHER RESOLUTION TERRAIN RECONSTRUCTION FROM SAR DATA THAN CAN BE OBTAINED BY RADAR STEREO TECHNIQUES ALONE.
