Abstract : The task objective is to develop the description of a rugged Touchstone processor that will process radar data from the ARPA IPSARE (Interferometric SAR for Elevations) system into terrain height images at rates equal to or better than four times the real time collection rate. The processor system description shall be complete and will describe the IFP software and hardware needed to provide the production rates stated above. The processor configuration produced shall be based on timing mns made with code somewhat optimized for the rugged Touchstone. Although the effort is centered on the IFSARE system, the results are extendable to interferometric SAR systems.
