Abstract

This effort will develop an HRR mode that is interleaved with search modes, allowing simultaneous search mode and target interrogation. This allows a more efficient use of radar resources and the ability to prefilter targets before committing the radar to longer ISAR dwells. Feature extraction from HRR profiles allows support of Maritime Classification Aids (MCA) and operator classification and identification.
