Abstract [en]

In this report a radar model is modeled and implemented in a simulation framework

called Flames. The focus is to investigate how and if electromagnetic waves emitted

from the radar antenna can be simulated by different methods and how these

methods can be implemented to work in real-time simulations. The radar model

developed in this report is based on ray tracing and ray propagation techniques

developed by the author. The model considers varying refractive indices that

describes both standard atmospheres and atmospheres where ducting occur.

Preparatory studies are also made to model ground reflection by ray tracing

techniques. Other simulation techniques, such as the Finite-Difference Time-Domain

method and the Split-Step Parabolic Equation method, are furthermore considered

for radar simulation applications. The results show that ray tracing in conjunction

with geometrical optics is a valid method for simulating electromagnetic waves in

simple atmosphere models.
