28 April 2009 A challenge problem for SAR-based GMTI in urban environments
Author Affiliations +
This document describes a challenge problem whose scope is the detection, geolocation, tracking and ID of moving vehicles from a set of X-band SAR data collected in an urban environment. The purpose of releasing this Gotcha GMTI Data Set is to provide the community with X-band SAR data that supports the development of new algorithms for SAR-based GMTI. To focus research onto specific areas of interest to AFRL, a number of challenge problems are defined. The data set provided is phase history from an AFRL airborne X-band SAR sensor. Some key features of this data set are two-pass, three phase center, one-foot range resolution, and one polarization (HH). In the scene observed, multiple vehicles are driving on roads near buildings. Ground truth is provided for one of the vehicles.
