This paper describes the development of an algorithm for detecting multiple-scattering events in the 3D Geometric Theory of Diffraction (GTD)-based Jackson-Moses scattering model. This approach combines microlocal analysis techniques with geometric-invariant theory to estimate multiple-scattering events. After multiple-scattering returns were estimated, the algorithm employed the Generalized Radon Transform to determine the existence of multiple scattering within the measured data. The algorithm was tested on an X-band simulation of isotropic point scatterers undergoing unknown rotational motion.
