Abstract:

S SYSTEM FOR STUDYING TARGETS AND THE CLUTTER ENVIRONMENT, IN ADDITION TO ITS USE FOR DEMONSTRATING THE FEASIBILITY OF RADAR DETECTION OF WALKING MEN IN FOLIAGE. Investigations of target return spectra, clutter return spectra, and clutter return amplitude statistics are reported. Theoretical models relating clutter return spectra, and clutter return amplitude statistics are reported. Theoretical models relating clutter spectra to wind turbulence and tree resonances are presented and compared with experimental results. Similarly, a previous theoretical prediction of target return spectra is compared with experimental results. Clutter return amplitude statistics are measured and found to be Gaussian under certain conditions. Finally, the volume contains some comments on the relationships between the subclutter visibility and various parameters of digital MTI systems.
