Recent advances in extremely high frequency (EHF) radiation sources have resulted in ability to extend RF techniques to higher and higher frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum. While signal strength, and consequently signal to noise ratios (SNR) and signal to clutter ratios (SCR) remain the primary limitation, constantly increasing power levels in these bands result in the accessibility of a greater diversity of applications. Of these applications, RF and radar imaging techniques have some of the highest potential of rapid integration in a number of fields through the intuitive nature of false color imagery. In support of nondestructive testing IERUS will implement an end-to-end system simulation in support of a model based systems engineering approach to design of an EHF rail SAR prototype system.
