15 April 2008 Recent MTI experiments using ARL's synchronous impulse reconstruction (SIRE) radar
Author Affiliations +
The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has recently developed the ground-based synchronous impulse reconstruction (SIRE) radar - a low-frequency radar capable of exploiting both a real antenna array and along-track integration techniques to increase the quality of processed imagery. We have already demonstrated the system's utility by imaging static scenes. In this paper we address the moving target indication (MTI) problem, and we demonstrate the impulse-based system's ability to both detect and locate slowly moving targets. We begin by briefly describing the SIRE system itself as well as the system configuration utilized in collecting the MTI data. Next we discuss the signal processing techniques employed to create the final MTI image. Finally, we present processed imagery illustrating the utility of the proposed method.
