Research Institution
A new Plasma Radar Effects Simulation (PRES) is proposed. The objective is a software tool that predicts radar observables for general three-dimensional plasma volumes (plumes/wakes are special cases). PRES requires an imported flowfield containingcharged species and condensed phase particulate properties. Flow solutions for mean and Reynolds-averaged turbulence in two and three dimensions as well as instantaneous realizations of turbulent flows (large eddy simulations, for example) will beaccommodated. The simulation includes total and resolved (spatial, temporal, frequency, polarization) cross sections, attenuation by mean and turbulent scattering along refracted paths, waveform distortion, and attenuation by diffraction. Phase Iincludes evaluation and demonstration of the models for these plasma radar effects and a plan for the code structure and implementation of these models in a comprehensive simulation software tool. The simulation exploits extensive common components of theMDA Phase II SBIR
