Abstract:

The goal of this research is to advance distributed radar imaging in contested and challenging environments. Contested environments are typically uncertain, complex and ambiguous areas where radars capabilities are limited, denied or deceived. Both distributed active and passive radar provide important sensing capabilities in contested environments. The objectives of the project are organized along the following topics i Passive imaging of extended and moving targets. This aims to develop methods to overcome the limitations of widely used time or frequency difference of arrival based back projection techniques. ii Passive multi-static, polarimetric imaging. iii Analysis of artifacts in SAR imagery. We quantify artifacts caused by phase errors such as unknown refractive index or ground topography.
