Performant and High-Fidelity Solution for Complex and Large Radar Scene Simulation including Wind Turbines

Abstract : This paper presents a state-of-the-art solution, called SE-Workbench-RF, for generating raw data dedicated to radar simulation based on the exploitation of synthetic environments, which means physical modelling of targets and backgrounds (terrains, buildings, vegetation and other entities). The paper gives an overview of the models and their implementation in SE-RAY-EM, which is the rendering module of SE-Workbench-RF, including specific features related to radar simulation in the maritime environment with targets moving on the dynamic sea surface. Several technical topics are then discussed, such as the rendering technique (ray tracing vs. rasterization), the implementation (CPU vs. GP GPU) and the trade-off between physical accuracy and computational performance. Finally, typical examples of results are shown with a focus on the problematic of the disturbances that may be generated by wind turbines installed close to radar systems, with a specific focus on sea- shore environment.
