Abstract
The objective of this effort is to develop track-before-detect algorithms to provide greater signal processing gain for pulsed-Doppler radars. We will develop and demonstrate signal processing techniques to be used in next-generation ground-based radars to detect and track objects of interest. We will complete a feasibility analysis of the proposed techniques on high-speed, low RCS targets which was initiated in Phase I. We will design, develop, and produce a prototype to address the problem of radar range-Doppler straddle. We will demonstrate the prototype and innovative signal processing techniques on a suitable test bed platform provided by the Government. The prototype will be made available to the Government for testing and evaluation; the verification and validation of the technical approach will be achieved through analysis, simulations, and/or other quantitative means. At the completion of the effort, we will deliver a detailed report of this effort and its results.
