Abstract : The ability of an observer to stereoscopically view overlapping radar image pairs is evaluated. This analysis is based on a set of aircraft and satellite radar data, and on data generated by means of computer simulation. Synthesis of radar images is based on digital elevation models, allowing one to study a much wider range of flight parameters and sensor geometries than is currently available for study with real data. The report discusses simulation techniques, presents an evaluation of different radar-grammetric stereo geometries and analyses effects of squint angle, look angles and look angle differences on the stereoscopic view-ability of overlapping radar images.
