Many of the questions that arise concerning the operating parameters for spaceborne synthetic aperture imaging radar systems can be addressed in a cost-effective manner by using simulation techniques. This can include use of airborne images, Seasat images, and computer simulation. The first computer simulation of spaceborne radar imagery has been analyzed for system definition studies. Analysis of the simulation indicates that incidence angles as small as 30° are useful for general terrain geomorphologic analysis.
