Abstract
This effort will develop innovative techniques to provide target classification of ground moving target indication (GMTI) contacts using simultaneous and continuous streaming SAR imagery of moving targets within the scene. Using modified waveforms but the same data that is used for SAR processing, these techniques use GMTI techniques on intermediate SAR image formation processing to detect the moving target. That data is then reprocess to focus and image the moving target for improved target classification. SAR images in which decelerating moving targets are identified is an additional capability to be investigated.
