Abstract

This effort will develop innovative coherent temporal processing techniques and radar modes that detect, discriminate and track small boats and semi-submersible vessels in the presence of highly variable Doppler spectra characteristics that occur in the littoral sea clutter environment. This is a follow on to the Phase 1 efforts where the feasibility of this approach was demonstrated. The effort includes data collection for validation of the approach and mode design activities.
