Ground Penetrating Radar Simulation Software

Export of 32 bit simulation radargrams added to the Display menu (5/18/16).  Rectangle target added to Draw Model menu (11/19/15).  Import of 32 bit radargrams for extraction of simulated transmit impulse response function from the raw radargram added to the Impulse menu (3/17/15). 

Bug Fixes:
11/7/17 Polarity display of the replicate impulse response function on top the simulation and the color legend plotted upside down
12/12/17 Autoinserting a layer structure had a fill point to far below the top surface, and thus not allowing for thin layers on the order of 1 or 2 cells thick to be generated
