Paper Abstract

This paper describes extended work on a comprehensive rotational-motion estimation and compensation technique to improve the quality of range-Doppler imagery. The approach assumes that the target signature is a collection of samples in the frequency space aperture plane. Motion compensation is performed via a polar reformatting scheme that requires knowledge of target kinematics, while motion estimation is accomplished by monitoring an entropy-like function in terms of kinematic parameter estimates. When properly selected, the entropy-like function becomes an accurate measure of image sharpness, and can thus be used to control a down-hill simplex search which yields an optimum set of rotational-motion parameter estimates. Ultimately, this set is needed to produce an optimally focused target image.
