Abstract:

In this proposal, C & P Technologies (C & P) offers an innovative generalized adaptive radar signal processing technique that will improve the capability of the warfighter to detect enemy combatants (dismounts) in challenging clutter environments. Radar is the sensor of choice for this persistent surveillance application because it can operate at long range, both day and night, and under a wide variety of weather and battlefield conditions. C & P will apply an innovative adaptive radar discrimination technique to provide ground surveillance radars operating at very low elevation angles with an improved capability to detect low RCS dismounted adversaries against a battlefield background that may include highly reflective stationary terrain features, buildings and other manmade urban structures, rain, wind-blown vegetation and sand, and other moving clutter sources along with low-flying air vehicles. BENEFIT: The proposed algorithms can improve the system performance of other military and civilian applications. These new algorithms and tools will optimize the utility of global imaging systems that are useful for multi-sensor and multi-target tracking of military targets in any region of interest. The receiver design algorithms proposed here can be incorporated in commercial applications such as weather mapping and forecasting. Other applications include backup for boarder patrol in terms of detecting fleeing dismounts and tracking their number and possibly identifying their shapes for homeland security type applications. Harbor surveillance for homeland security, law enforcement surveillance, and industrial security are other possible commercial applications of the proposed algorithms.
