Paper Abstract

In the systems that use imaging radars for aircraft navigation, one of the main problems is the estimation of aircraft attitude based on the Doppler spectrum of the received signal. This information is required not only for purely navigational purposes: without knowing the precise orientation of SAR antenna beam, it is practically impossible to correctly build a uniform radar image within the antenna pattern because of signal modulation (or weakening) by the antenna beam in the azimuth direction. The methodology of such measurements has been developed in a number of our works using a statistical approach to pattern recognition, including the issues of suboptimal algorithm construction and accuracy evaluation [1,2].
