  • Three-dimensional synthetic aperture radar imaging of a fir tree: first results

    A three-dimensional (3D) inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging experiment on a fir tree is described. Radar measurements on single trees under laboratory conditions can be performed in the scatterometric, with no aperture synthesis, and in the imaging (SAR) mode. Imaging an entire tree requires the use of a wideband radar and a two-dimensional (2D) aperture which may be synthetic or real. A 3D ISAR image can be obtained by processing- coherently the backscattered fields as a function of the frequency and two rotation angles about axes which are mutually orthogonal. With such a system, and by conveniently processing the acquired data, the major scatterers and their positions within the tree volume can be identified with a high spatial resolution. The obtained 2D and 3D polarimetric ISAR images show that this new technique can be used to support the understanding of the interaction of electromagnetic waves with natural targets and provide the basis for the validation and verification of existing models.

  • Two-body multiple scattering

    Summary form only given. To achieve improved target discrimination and identification has been the driving force behind the development of high- resolution radar systems. A method of target identification with wideband radar data is to form a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) or an inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) image of the target by spatially isolating the individual scattering sources. However, to design a better radar signal processor requires a complete understanding of the interactions between isolated scattering sources. The multiple scattering of electromagnetic waves by several simple two-body targets was studied in terms of their sub- nanosecond pulse returns. The wideband target responses were analyzed through use of an asymptotic solution to a generic two-body scattering formulation; when considering the computed results, emphasis was aimed towards the coupling phenomenon. These coupling components between bodies were isolated experimentally using a coherent X-band high-resolution radar system, and the data were in good general agreement with the analytical solutions. It is shown that multiple scatterings can contribute significantly to the total radar cross-section even when the scattering sources are separated by many wavelengths.

  • A novel algorithm for reconstructing three-dimensional target shapes using sequential radar images

    Inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) is one of the radar techniques used to observe two dimensional images of a remotely based target using radio waves. Since the "cross range" vector is ambiguous, estimating the three-dimensional shape of the target is difficult. However, it is possible to estimate the three-dimensional shape using moving pictures taken by a video camera, if the relative movement between the camera and the target is known. In this paper we propose an algorithm for reconstructing three-dimensional shape of the target by applying a similar technique to the ISAR images. The theory and the required condition of the proposed method are described and some results obtained by the computer simulations are shown.

  • A new method of cross-range scaling of low resolution radar

    Ordinary low resolution radar can not distinguish the radar target in both range and azimuth. If we apply the technology of inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) to resolve the difference among Doppler frequency of the scatterers on the target, we can obtain a fine resolution cross-range image. The cross-range scale depends on both radar wavelength and rotating angle of target relative to radar-line-of-sight (RLOS) during the coherent accumulation. The former is known while the latter is difficult to determine especially in the case of ISAR. But it is necessary to investigate the method of cross-range scaling of low-resolution radar, as it is very important to radar target classification and recognition. In this paper, a new approach is proposed which is based on the principle of interferometric inverse synthetic aperture. We calculate the phase difference of some scatterers between two instant cross-range images by two antennas, which are placed horizontally, adding the range between the two radar and the range of the target, and then absolute cross ranges of some dominant scatterers are obtained. We apply the proposed algorithm to the emulational data of two antennas. The processing results show that the proposed method is correct and effective.

  • Sidelobe apodization for high resolution of scattering centres in ISAR images

    Inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) image processing is useful in identifying and isolating dominant scattering centres of a target for subsequent placement of radar absorbing material (RAM). ISAR image construction artifacts have the potential of obscuring low intensity scatterers in the image as well as blurring regions where closely separated scatterers occur. Spatially variant sidelobe apodization (SVA) is a technique that reduces sidelobe levels in a Fourier image while maintaining the image resolution that would be obtained using the rectangular window. We investigate the application of 2 versions of SVA to the ISAR image of a ship; these are the standard cosine-on-pedestal SVA and the new Kaiser window version of SVA. It is found that either SVA approach is able to find and isolate scattering centres. We also found that when polar reformatting is required, neither SVA version is a substitute for it, but applying SVA after polar reformatting gives excellent results.

  • Applying the minimum free energy spectral estimation algorithm to ISAR imaging

    Inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) is a technique used to obtain an image of the radar target. It can be described as a spectral analysis problem. This paper discusses the application of the minimum free energy (MFE) spectral estimation algorithm for the purpose of ISAR imaging. The MFE algorithm is a regularization algorithm which achieves a better noise performance than other methods studied previously. The paper discusses the choice of parameters for the MFE technique, and presents ISAR images obtained using MFE for various observation times. MFE indeed achieves a 3-4 times higher resolution than the classic Fourier technique, without prominent spikes in the noise region. However, some of the details observed in the Fourier image are lost. Using diversity (incoherent) combining, it is shown that based upon the same RF data, MFE and the Fourier techniques produce images of similar quality, although MFE poses a less stringent requirement on the length of the coherent observation time. The MFE can be applied to ISAR imaging of close to radial targets.

  • ISAR imaging with stepped-frequency chirp signal by de-chirping processing

    Inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging with stepped-frequency chirp signal (SFCS) is simulated by de-chirping processing. Time-frequency analysis and image processing techniques are applied together for motion compensation. Detailed algorithm steps and imaging simulation for high-speed moving target with an acceleration as large as 30m/s<sup>2</sup> are presented. Results indicate that SFCS signal has an much better performance than stepped- frequency continuous wave signal for imaging of target with ultra-high speed.

  • ISAR - radar imaging of targets with complicated motion

    ISAR imaging is described for general motion of a radar target. ISAR imaging may be seen as a 3D to 2D projection, and the importance of the ISAR image projection plane is stated. For general motion, ISAR images are often smeared when using FFT processing. Time frequency methods are used to analyze such images, and to form sharp images. A given smeared image is shown to be the result of changes both in scale and in the projection plane orientation.
