Paper Abstract

Complex spatial filters derived from maximizing a unique objective function are applied to Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) both to grayscale images and directly to phase history (sensor) data. For a limited class of MSTAR targets, a high degree of discrimination is shown in both cases. Applications to tracking are discussed and some areas for future investigations are indicated.
