Abstract : The report covers a study of signal processing and display techniques which will allow presentation of microwave radiometric information to observers in a 'real world' format. The study considered the speed and overall suitability of various digital techniques and selected a novel method which uses 'complex exponential representation' of signals. Data from previous radiometric programs was processed by this method. The study also examined magnetic storage methods of achieving the refresh function for the display. A three-color CRT was studied as the means of presenting a range of background apparent temperatures as well as targets to the observer. Conclusions concerning the suitability of these methods are drawn and recommendations are made for future effort. (Author)
