Abstract
SPACE BASED RADARS WITH LENS OR REFLECTOR ANTENNAS CAN READILY PROVIDE MULTIPLE BEAM OUTPUTS. OTHER SBR DESIGNED TO DETECT AND TRACK AIRCRAFT, INCLUDING SYSTEMS WITH CORPORATE FED ARRAY ANTENNAS, MAY PROVIDE MONOPULSE SUM AND DIFFERENCE OUTPUTS FOR ANGLE MEASUREMENT. A METHOD IS DESCRIBED FOR EXPLOITING THESE MULTIPLE BEAM OR MONOPULSE ANTENNA OUTPUTS FOR THE DETECTION OF SLOW-MOVING TARGETS WITH DOPPLER FREQUENCIES IN THE MAIN BEAM CLUTTER SPECTRUM. ADAPTIVE DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING IS USED TO PROVIDE MOTION COMPENSATION AND REJECT THE MAIN BEAM CLUTTER RETURNS AT THE TARGET DOPPLER FREQUENCIES.
