The use of the Radon transform and the Wigner-Radon power spectrum for ISAR motion compensation is described. It is shown that the local Radon power spectrum is closely related to the Cohen's class of quadratic time-frequency representations in a similar way as the Radon and Fourier transform are related. The peak of the local Radon transform is used as a measure for the velocity towards the radar of a moving target. The velocity estimate can be used to align the range profiles and perform target radial motion correction. Another application of the Radon transformation is the correction for time-variation of Doppler frequency of the signal during the Coherent Processing Interval. The Radon transform of the cross-range time-frequency representation of the signal is used for focusing an ISAR image that has been blurred due to non-uniform target rotation.
