Ground-based synthetic aperture radar (GBSAR) is a great example of the extended applications of synthetic aperture radar (SAR). SAR is well-known for its capability of producing highly-detailed images. A set of SAR images taken from the same scene can be further processed and analysed to measure the displacement or deformation that took place in the scene if any. This technique is extremely useful in surface deformation monitoring for human-made structures, landslides, avalanches and many more. The process of designing and developing a GBSAR system is rather costly and time-consuming. It would be a great advantage for the system designer to have a realistic simulation and designing tool to anticipate the results before the implementation of the final design. In this work, an advanced simulation and processing tools was developed for GBSAR. The program is developed in MATLAB and is equipped with various tools to assist the system designer at different stages in GBSAR design, development, system simulation, data processing and interferometric SAR (InSAR) analysis. This paper documents the developed GBSAR simulator, which includes the GBSAR system designer, GBSAR raw signal generator, GBSAR signal processing tool as well as InSAR processing tool.
