It has recently become apparent that dismount tracking from non-EO based sources will have a large positive impact on urban operations. EO / camera imaging is subject to line of site and weather conditions which makes it a non-robust source for dismount tracking. Other sensors exist (e.g. radar) to track dismount targets; however, little radar dismount data exists. This paper examines the capability to generate synthetic and measured dismount data sets for radar frequency (RF) processing. For synthetic data, we used the PoserTM program to generate 500 facet models of human dismount walking. Then we used these facet models with Xpatch to generate synthetic wideband radar data. For measured dismount data, we used a multimode (X-Band and Ku-Band) radar system to collect RF data of volunteer human (dismount) targets.
