Paper Abstract

This paper presents the estimated 'electrical lengths' of ten ground targets from measured high range resolution (HRR) data. The HRR data is derived from stationary synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data through reversing the process used to form the SAR images. These estimated ground target 'electrical lengths' are used in a length-only, forced decision automatic target recognition (ATR) algorithm to determine the impact of using the target's 'electrical length' as a single feature. Various levels of noise are also folded into the HRR profiles to study the impact of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) on the length-only ATR performance.
