Abstract
We have previously presented the architecture and basic analytic results for a functional 1D pipelined hybrid optical/digital processing concept capable of generating a target range- doppler profile in real time. Here we address the fundamental system processing algorithm and hardware development issues in some detail. The approach to performing real-time phase correction of the individual range profiles is outlined, along with the basic system operational runtime algorithms and system processing pipeline. A description of the receiver hardware and its component functionality in terms of the presented operational theory is given as well.
