Abstract
This propose effort will determine the feasibility of and continue development of innovative methods in support of simultaneous tracking and imaging for Pulse Doppler radar systems. Future missions of airborne ISR radar systems will require detection of moving targets in the presence of clutter, jamming, and other background interference noise using the maritime moving target indicator (MMTI) waveform and to automatically classify the targets using high resolution imaging waveforms such as high range resolution (HRR) and inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR). As computational capabilities become increasingly available, the use of advanced signal processing software to simultaneously process radar data for the purpose of detection and automatic target recognition (ATR) becomes more practical.
