Paper Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate that the use of a relatively low crossrange resolution may be advantageous for aircraft identification in many situations. With high range resolution but low crossrange resolution, one can obtain a remarkably high feature extraction accuracy, provided the appropriate processing techniques are used. This approach will give a better identification performance than if one attempted to form an image with high crossrange resolution when the flight of the aircraft is unsteady. The radar can make the choice adaptively, depending on the flight behavior of the aircraft to be identified.
