Multistatic Radar Imaging of Moving Targets
MetadataShow full item record
We develop a linearized imaging theory that combines the spatial, temporal, and spectral aspects of scattered waves. We consider the case of fixed sensors and a general distribution of objects, each undergoing linear motion; thus the theory deals with imaging distributions in phase space. We derive a model for the data that is appropriate for narrowband waveforms in the case when the targets are moving slowly relative to the speed of light. From this model, we develop a phase-space imaging formula that can be interpreted in terms of filtered backprojection or matched filtering. For this imaging approach, we derive the corresponding phase-space point-spread function. We show plots of the phase-space point-spread function for various geometries, and various combinations of waveforms.

Enhancement of the point-spread function for imaging in scattering media by use of polarization-difference imaging Tyo, J. Scott (2000-01);Polarization-difference (PD) imaging techniques have been demonstrated to improve the detectability of target features that are embedded in scattering media. The improved detectability occurs for both passive imaging in ...
