Paper Abstract

Detection of stationary targets with a real-aperture radar requires an algorithm that is a function of suitably defined features. The definition and values of these features are normally dependent on bandwidth, look-averaging, and polarization. Since the use of a fully polarimetric radar may not be feasible for low-cost radars on ground platforms, the goal of this effort is to investigate trade-offs between polarization and bandwidth. In this paper, we present prescreener and quadratic polynomial discriminator performance comparisons as a function of polarization, bandwidth, and look-averaging.
