12 AMTI: AIRBORNE RADAR TARGETS X-band ( ~ 10 GHz ) homodyne CW radar returns off helicopters in flight CREATES ONLY A A 2-D RESPONSE RATHER THAN A 3-D RESPONSE ( no movement through range bins ) Doppler signatures in baseband ( 0 Hz IF ) I/Q signals after complex demodulation; + frequencies toward radar and – frequencies away from radar Baseband sampled at sps with 16-bit A/D conversion precision ( 96 dB DNR ) Up to 70 dB signal component level range may be observed in data, since negligible clutter Nonstationary components contributing doppler signatures: Fuselage skin lineHub signatureAlias of JEM Main rotor modulations & blade flashMulti-path bouncesCross feed Tail rotor modulations & blade flashStabilizer bar (Huey) Note that –500 to +500 Hz region replaced with time code signal for accessing taped data German UH – 1D HueyEurocopter BO - 105

25 RECOMMENDATIONS Algorithms currently available: 1-D and corrected 2-D parametric, stochastic approximation LP, MV, and eigenanalysis/subspace techniques Develop the 3-D critical algorithms with highest payoff: AR, LP, MV for starters Develop the even more critical fast computational algorithms (looking for reductions greater than factor 1000 (better exploitation of multi-dimensional relationships) Adapt sharpening processing chain specifically for: HSI 3-D micro-motion features Develop the multi-channel (MIMO waveform diversity) for 2-D sharpening application Combining SAR imagery on stationary targets Fusing micro-Doppler features on non-stationary in-motion targets
