Abstract
In inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging, the migration through resolution cells (MTRCs) will occur when the rotation angle of the moving target is large, thereby degrading image resolution. To solve this problem, an ISAR imaging method based on segmented preprocessing is proposed. In this method, the echoes of large rotating target are divided into several small segments, and every segment can generate a low-resolution image without MTRCs. Then, each low-resolution image is rotated back to the original position. After image registration and phase compensation, a high-resolution image can be obtained. Simulation and real experiments show that the proposed algorithm can deal with the radar system with different range and cross-range resolutions and significantly compensate the MTRCs.
