Convert slant range resolution to ground range resolution

Since R2021b



    grndrngres = slant2grndrngres(slrngres,grazang) returns the ground range resolution grndrngres corresponding to the slant range resolution slrngres and the grazing angle grazang.

    Determine the ground range resolution given a slant range resolution of 2 m and a grazing angle of 30.

    slrngres = 2;
    grazang = 30;

    Compute the ground range resolution.

    grndrngres = slant2grndrngres(slrngres,grazang)
    grndrngres = 2.3094

    Input Arguments

    collapse all

    Slant range resolution in meters, specified as a positive real scalar or a vector.

    Data Types: double

    Grazing angle in degrees, specified as a scalar in the range [0, 90] or a vector.

    Data Types: double

    Output Arguments

    collapse all

    Ground range resolution in meters, returned as a matrix. The rows in grndrngres correspond to the slant range resolutions in slrngres and the columns correspond to the grazing angles in grazang.
