Paper Abstract

This paper investigates methodologies for predicting the smear signatures in squinted spotlight synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery collections due to surface targets that are undergoing braking maneuvers. Previous analysis considered the case of broadside collection geometries. Analytic computation of a power series expansion is used to compute a generic expression for the down-range and cross-range components of the predicted mover signature. In addition, recent analysis presents capabilities for predicting the full signature shape, including the smear width and interference effects. The current investigations focuses on the effects of squinted collection geometries upon braking targets signatures.
