Paper Abstract

We present an efficient algorithm for computation of the maximum likelihood estimate of the location of a known target from short pulse scatter data measured in a suite of tomographic experiments. The algorithm consists of a three step procedure: (1) data filtering, (2) dime-domain backpropagation, and (3) coherent summation and employs of a number of forward and inverse Radon transforms integrated in a tomographic scheme. A computer simulation is included for illustration purposes.
