Radar has emerged as a leading technology supporting large sectors of commerce, defense and security. Enabled by the advent of small, low-cost solid-state and software-defined radar technologies, new radar applications involving cognitive radar, medical and biometric radar, passive radar, and automotive radar have been made possible. In this paper, we examine redundancy in human motion signatures along the data and short-time Fourier transform (STFT) parameters. With an "eye" on a final product, we evaluate the effect of reduced sampling along slow-time on classification performance. The goal is to determine the degree of data down-sampling that can be tolerated without compromising feature extraction or significantly impeding motion classifications. We search for the optimum STFT parameters that provide the best classification performance for the given radar measurements and gain an understanding of their respective nominal range values.
