Abstract

ABSTRACT: Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) has developed an innovative and computationally efficient GMTI signal processing algorithm which a hybrid of two existing methods; along-track interferometry (ATI) and the displaced phase center antenna (DPCA) technique. Hybrid ATI/DPCA exploits the complementary information from each method and combines the relative advantages for significantly improved performance, especially in mountainous and urban clutter environments, where traditional GMTI algorithms (e.g., STAP) are prone to false alarms. In phase I of the proposed effort SSSC plans to demonstrate the performance of ATI/DPCA on a two-channel Ku-band SWaP limited (
