27 April 2018 High-performance computing strategies for SAR image experiments
Author Affiliations +
This article presents different strategies for generating very large sets of SAR phase history and imagery for target recognition studies using the open-use Raider Tracer simulation tool. Previous data domes, based on Visual D, produced numerous data sets for ground targets above a flat surface, but each target had a single orientation. Here, the experiment specifies different target types, each above a ground plane, but with arbitrary pose, yaw, and pitch. The customized data set poses challenges to load balancing and file input/output synchronization for a limited cpu hour budget. Strategies are presented to complete each image within a minimal time, and to generate the complete experiment set within a desired time.
