Abstract : The state-of-the-art was sampled to determine whether modern, commercially available computers with mass data storage units offered the potential for simulation of the performance of high-resolution radar systems. This effort was primarily concerned with the data storage for urban areas since such areas would place the severest burden upon the digital storage and computation system. Selected areas of New York City and San Francisco were analyzed from aerial photographs, and 74,000 dimensional readings were taken to form the basis for the conclusions given in this report. The analysis of results based upon extrapolations indicated the feasibility of system simulation from the standpoint of data storage and access time of modern computers. (Author)
