Paper Abstract

A high PRF rate single frequency instrumentation radar is used to generate two-dimensional images of rotating structures such as helicopter blades and hubs. The technique utilizes a tomographic backprojection reconstruction algorithm where Doppler spectra generate cross-range one-dimensional profiles of the rotating structure. A simplified computer generated scattering model is developed to show proof-of-concept and aid in developing the reconstruction algorithm.
