Abstract
Potential cost effective proprietary solutions to a number of outstanding problems involved in achieving an SBR capable of meeting military surveillance and reconnaissance requirement for the detection and track of both ground and airborne moving targets are proposed to be further developed and space-time adaptive processing SBR. Performance evaluations will be made with a 3-D broadband simulation model. The problem with proposed design measure solutions, include the difficulty in meeting the minimum detectable velocity (MDV) requirement in the GMTI mode due to the large platform velocity; the relatively high cost of time delay steering of the E-scan antenna or hybrid phase-time delay steering, and which also do not satisfactorily address the antenna dispersion problem; the need for reliable SBR operation over a long time period (7 to 10 years); the performance degradation due to distortions of the planar array antenna (warping and twisting); the susceptibility to certain interference environments; range walk degradation; the potential need for a shared aperture two-band antenna; and the potential need for an effective frame-time reduction mode.
