Real-Time Dismount Detection and Tracking Using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) System
The assumptions and techniques in existing literature for detection and tracking of dismounts in radar data are invalid for use in standoff, ISR radar systems. This work proposes using change detection techniques to detecting and tracking dismounts. This work contains efforts both in modeling as well as empirical analysis. The modeling provides the ability to determine the types of radars best suited for this problem as well as assist in radar design. The empirical work helps to validate the models as well provide a proof of concept for the use of change detection for locating dismounts. Finally, the traditional methods of radar-based dismount detection are also considered to determine whether or not the models and techniques can be modified such that they are valid for standoff radars. BENEFIT: The primary benefit of this work is the development of techniques to detect and track dismounts. This has the potential to aid in several DoD missions including battlespace awareness, mission planning, checkpoint safety, and perimeter monitoring. Commercialization opportunities exist as the capability to estimate threat is needed by various government agencies including the DoD, US Border Patrol and law enforcement. Our goal is to market these sectors with a suite of tools that will denote regions that have an elevated level of threat.
