Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional image reconstruction of moving targets from one-dimensional radar information traditionally has been challenging. Range and Doppler (range rate) measurements of prominent, radar scattering centers are rich with information for image reconstruction. Target kinematics and structural rigidity produce invariant parameters that support mathematical reconstruction solutions. Relating two frames of reference, one based on the radar source and the other on target motion, generate innovative range and Doppler equations. Solutions of these equations provide the basis for determining the three-dimensional location of scattering centers and target image reconstruction.
