Abstract

An innovative scheme is presented for moving target detection and high-resolution focusing that exploits a bank of chirp scaling algorithms (CSA), each one matched to a different along track target velocity component. The new scheme is thought for multichannel (MC) synthetic aperture radar systems, to provide a high-resolution focusing of the moving targets. Adequate target detection capability is ensured by integrating the aforementioned bank of CSA with a post-Doppler space-time adaptive processing clutter cancellation step. The presented scheme is very efficient from a computational point of view and is able to achieve subclutter visibility for the moving targets. The effectiveness of the proposed techniques is shown with reference to an emulated MC data set.
