Abstract
As US military mission change on the modern battlefield, so must the techniques and algorithms providing battlespace awareness. Asymmetric threats such as civilian vehicles operating in urban environments are increasingly becoming important. Current GMTI systems have difficulty in generating and maintaining tracks in these urban environments. Novel signal processing approaches are necessary to extract increasingly time critical information products over wide fields of view. Arete Associates will design, test and implement advanced processing algorithms showing greatly improved detection performance in difficult clutter conditions. BENEFIT: The proposed advanced radar processing algorithms are highly suitable for a variety of radar systems. The ability to detect and track slow moving targets in high clutter will allow land and sea surveillance systems including Army, Navy and DHS assets to operate with significantly enhanced capabilities.
