Paper Abstract

The recently developed 2-D TLS-Prony technique is applied to a single and full-polarization synthetically generated radar data set. The radar target analyzed is a generic aircraft consisting of a fuselage, wing, stabilizer, and tail. The 2-D TLS-Prony technique is a parametric estimation technique that models the radar return frequency domain data (multiple angle, multiple frequency data, e.g., SAR/ISAR) using damped exponentials. The technique's ability to accurately model and characterize the target are investigated. Scattering center location and characterization are accomplished by the technique. Issues such as model order selection, bandwidth requirements, and modeling error are examined for both single and full polarization data sets.
