Paper Abstract

Under Advanced Research Prjects Agency (ARPA) sponsorship, Loral Defense Systems, Arizona has developed algorithms and techniques for suppressing radio frequency interference (RFI) in radar signals. These techniques use conventional signal processing elements in an unconventional manner to localize the RFI energy in a domain where it can be easily distinguished from radar returns and removed from the radar data with minimal effect on coherent radar signal image formation processing. Significantly improved synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) images have been obtained using these techniques. Flight tests of a Loral airborne SAR system operating from 500 to 800 MHz have provided the SAR data used to develop and refine these RFI suppression techniques.
