HEIGHT MEASUREMENT WITH STEREORADAR

The effect of image dissimilarities on terrain height- measurement capabilities of three stereoradar techniques for obtaining stereoimage pairs is compared by using computer-generated simulated radar images. Simulated images are used because two of the stereoradar techniques are not presently implemented. The stereoradar techniques are: an improved single-flight technique, a previously proposed single-flight technique, and a two-flight technique which has been implemented. Improved stereoviewability is observed for the improved single-flight technique as compared with the pre-single-flight technique, and both single-flight techniques are better than the previously implemented two-flight technique. The improved terrain height-measuring errors which are only 59 percent as large as those for the two-flight technique. /Author/
