Abstract
In multi-channel SAR systems, the detection of movers is carried out using techniques based on the Wiener filter. An important problem is the estimation of the moving target parameters such as along-track velocity, across-track velocity, and azimuth displacement. In this paper, the parameter estimation problem is formulated as a novel Bayesian state estimation problem. The unscented Kalman filter is applied to the problem and it is noted that it leads to good estimates.
