Abstract
ISAR (inverse synthetic aperture radar) can generate 2D image of a non-cooperative moving target and be used for military and civilian purpose. For moving target,well-focused ISAR images can be achieved using appropriate motion compensation and image reconstruction algorithm. The ISAR image will be difficultly when the echo is at a low signal-to-noise level. For polarimetric ISAR system which transmits and receives different polarisation signal in both two channels, the fusion of HRRP (high range resolution profile) from different channels will improve significantly the SNR of the signal. The method proposed in this paper firstly fuses the different channels HRRP to get a higher SNR signal. Then the target region is extracted in fused HRRP. Finally, the motion compensation for ISAR imaging is carried out only on the extracted target region data in the sense of using image reconstruction method to gain a focused ISAR image. The real measured data shows the validity of the algorithm.
