SSI is active in applying model-based radar resolution enhancement to estimating target pose. A critical property of radar signature simulation is incorporation of frequency and aspect angle dependencies. Our radar modeling system, named QUID Augmented Synthetic Aperture Radar (QUASAR), includes the specification of radar parameters and data acquisition/processing in pose determination. Combined radar and processing simulation provides for the analysis of tradeoffs involving sensor deployments under various scenarios.
