Paper Abstract

Signal processing techniques employed by a software-defined radar are presented. First, the radar system is described in brief, illustrating how software-defined radios (SDRs) are leveraged to implement a baseline radar functionality. Next, multiple, required processing steps are presented, showing how target signatures can be extracted from raw radar measurements. All of these techniques are applied to the moving target indication (MTI) problem, and examples of multiple moving target signatures are displayed.
