Abstract:

For the Space Radar system, the ability to detect, track, and characterize targets of interest, whether stationary or moving, is of critical importance. Operational performance and functionality in open ocean, littoral, and ground environments can be significantly enhanced in these areas by developing advanced signal processing techniques that go beyond the current state of the art. Arete Associates possesses a set of such algorithms which, under this proposal, will be brought together to improve detections in Space Radar applications while simultaneously providing for target imaging and characterization. These algorithms have been shown to be the optimal signal processing approach and will enable exploitation of the data on three key radar time scales - fast time (speed of light pulse roundtrip time - translates to range estimation), slow time (intra-CPI pulse-to-pulse separation - translates to line-of-sight Doppler frequency), and very slow time (CPI-to-CPI separation - translates to kinematic motion.)
