Paper Abstract

A time-integrated range-Doppler map shows the micro-Doppler characteristics of targets in radar images that enable an operator to classify different target types and to classify different activities being done by the targets. A time-integrated range-Doppler map is a compilation of range-Doppler maps over time that results in a spectrogram-like characterization of Doppler while maintaining the range information as well. These are compiled from the range-Doppler maps by taking the maximum value for each pixel over a time range. The time resolution is overlapped onto the range resolution, which is in effect a rotation of the traditional spectrogram which compresses range. This type of radar imaging also allows multiple subjects to be viewed simultaneously and avoids tracking issues in spectrogram creation. The display of range-Doppler movies or spectrograms with range extent is also demonstrated.
