A Synergistic MIMO SAR and GMTI Approach to Continuous Ground Moving Target Surveillance
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Enormous efforts have been devoted to the data acquisition, signal processing, and automatic recognition of stationary or moving targets. However, the move-stop-move ground targets are much more difficult to detect and localize since the detection of such challenging targets may require multiple radar systems, making system integration a challenging problem. Moreover, multidimensional situation awareness of the battlefield requires the coverage of large regions, known as wide area surveillance. There is a significant need to develop sensor platforms that allow synergistic SAR and GMTI for the detection, tracking, localization and recognition all types of targets over a wide area. The main objective of this program is to develop a synergistic multi-input multi-output (MIMO) SAR and GMTI radar system for wide area surveillance. The goal of this objective is to address the following technical issues for the MIMO radar system: probing waveform synthesis, receive filter design for SAR imaging, STAP for GMTI, as well as the simultaneous detection, tracking, localization and recognition of stationary, moving, move-stop-move targets. The secondary objective is to develop, test and deliver a software-based simulation capability that realistically simulates the MIMO SAR and GMTI radar sensor, target, clutter and interference environment.
