Paper Abstract

Among the most basic of antenna properties is angular resolution. Several methods exist for increasing radar resolution. Pulse compression is the classic method of producing increased resolution along the antenna boresight axis. For a moving platform, synthetic aperture techniques vastly increase the along track resolution. In this paper, an innovative method called scanned time/angle correlation (STAC) is presented which provides increased antenna angular resolution. This angular resolution is shown to be independent of antenna size and frequency and unlike synthetic aperture techniques requires motion of neither the target nor the platform.
