Abstract
This paper presents an algorithm for estimating the frequency dependence of scattering center amplitudes. The spectrum parted linked image test (SPLIT) algorithm compares the amplitude peaks in two images formed by splitting the radar signal bandwidth into two parts. The theoretical basis for the algorithm lies in the Geometrical Theory of Diffraction. This theoretical basis, a description of the algorithm, and experimental results are provided. The authors recommend the use of this algorithm for high frequency (> 5 GHz), wide-band (> 1 GHz) applications involving target detection and recognition.
