Development of phase history calibration techniques is important for improving Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) scene modeling capabilities. Image data of complex scene settings is used for clutter database construction, and the resulting databases are used in conjunction with synthetic radar predictions of complex targets to predict synthetic SAR imagery. The current method of trihedral calibration is typically performed after image formation, using a ratiometric technique, which is highly dependent on calibration target position and orientation and ground truth accuracy. As part of a recent SAR research data collection, measurements were made on a calibration-grade, 6-meter diameter top hat in both a homogeneous scene and with controlled obscuration and layover conditions. This paper will discuss phase-history calibration target design and scenario design to support obscuration and layover studies.
