Paper Abstract

The paper deals with the optimum detection of slowly moving targets with dual-channel SAR in the presence of internal clutter motion and mismatch from the DPCA condition. A double exponential model for the clutter covariance allows both interpretation of the optimum detector and closed form performance analysis to be derived. A shift invariant FIR space-time filter is obtained as the cancellation filter in the optimum detector. This is appealing for the processing of the long sequence of SAR echoes.
