Abstract:

This technical report presents a time-domain moving-target indication MTI processing formulation for detecting slow-moving personnel behind walls. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the MTI processing formulation using data collected by the U.S. Army Research Laboratorys ARL ultra-wideband UWB synchronous impulse reconstruction SIRE radar. The resulting data set is representative of multiple operational scenarios including personnel walking inside wood and cinderblock structures personnel walking in linear and nonlinear trajectories and multiple personnel walking within the same building structure. The results indicate that our time-domain MTI processing formulation can identify moving targets even when they move slowly along trajectories that are not favorable for classical, Doppler-based MTI.
