Abstract
A time-based computer simulation of space-based radar (SBR) systems is described. The simulation models the orbital dynamics of multiple radar satellites and computes the instantaneous fields of view of hypothetical onboard surveillance radars. The procedures are illustrated by computer-generated graphical examples. Preliminary coverage studies have been carried out for various satellite configurations, and illustrative results from these studies are provided to demonstrate the usefulness of this simulation in evaluating the performance of SBR systems.
