Paper Abstract

The detection of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) using radar can be challenging due to the small radar cross section and the presence of false targets such as birds. We present the initial results of micro-Doppler radar data collected on a small helicopter at G-band and compare the results to previously measured birds. The resulting signature differences can be used to help discriminate small UAVs from naturally occurring moving clutter such as birds.
