Abstract
The California Operation of Technology Service Corporation (TSC/CA) proposes a comprehensive program to develop GMTI persistent surveillance algorithms that discriminate human combatants from moving animals under foliage. TSC/CA will use measured and simulated radar data of human and animal targets at various resolutions to develop innovative discrimination algorithms and radar modes. The investigations will include human and animal data on both the micro-level (target-internal Doppler) and macro-level (persistent tracker-noted movement patterns).
