Paper Abstract

This project assembled a SAR algorithm analysis testbed and demonstrated the ability to focus moving targets possessing non-linear motion over a synthetic aperture collection. The testbed consisted of the ImSyn optoelectronic processor connected to a low end SGI workstation. A suite of software tools were developed to support focusing moving targets and to provide the necessary user interaction with the imaging process. We developed and tested moving target algorithms on a variety of simulated data sets and real SAR data. This report details the approach and algorithms that were employed to successfully process both SAR and ISAR data collections to add value to target discrimination and non-cooperative target identification.
