Abstract
Arete Associates proposes a Phase I effort to develop a radar mode that leverages a long coherent integration times to improve the detection of small boat targets in maritime environments up to sea state 4. The overall objective of this SBIR project is to then integrate these techniques and necessary algorithms into an end-to-end radar system signal processing system. The Phase I base effort will focus on demonstrating the basic concept of non-coherent state estimation to aid in coherent reprocessing. Successful demonstration of these concepts in the base effort will lead to their refinement in the option phase, in anticipation of inclusion in an operational system.
